The YWCA Early Learning Center has been awarded

INCCRRA's Gold Circle of Quality and is accredited by NAEYC!

Gold Circle and NAEYC programs meet or exceed DCFS requirements. Call us for more information on our quality credentials!

We believe that each day is an opportunity to learn something new and our children do that through play! We help navigate our children through the fields of social emotional, art, science, language arts, and practical skills!

YWCA Pekin Early Learning Center cares for children,

ages 6 weeks through 5 years, with an early learning curriculum. 

Monday - Friday

6:30am - 5:30pm

For school aged children, ages 5-12, we offer before and after school care or full day care for children currently on an A/B schedule due to COVID-19. 

Transportation to and from school is provided by the Pekin Bus Department.

We also provide all day care for school holidays and partial day care for early dismissals, as well as a Summer Adventure Camp!





















A current YWCA Pekin membership and appropriate paperwork are required to participate in our child care programs. S.A.L. Child Care Connections is accepted.
