For the parents, families and students of Austin, Ymca Joe Lee Johnson Elementary offers center-based early care and education that’ll both care for students and their needs now and prepare them for the years ahead! Ymca Joe Lee Johnson Elementary’s center-based environment enables a strong and structured learning culture, with the enriching curriculum and activities for students that stimulate the brain and their curiosity. Students will benefit from the socialization opportunities that come from interacting with peers of similar ages and non-family adults that’re professionals in the early education space. The benefit of a full-time schedule for children, too, can be dramatic!

Parents get the advantages of long blocks of time to work while students will grow their social, behavioral and cognitive skills.
