"They're teaching the kids the YMCA four core values – honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. She knows them, which is really cool, and she's not quite 6-years-old yet. She understands the concept. I try to help her apply them to the rest of her school day and at home with her sister."

"You couldn't ask for more – it's truly a wonderful program."
