Parents/guardians should park their car in a parking spot in the lower parking lot and walk their child in to the building each morning. Parents/guardians must drop their child off at The Burke Foundation Early Childhood Center at YWCA Princeton main entrance each day when they are dropping them off and picking them up.

Items to Bring Each Day

  •  a change of clothes, cream sun block (NO SPRAY SUNBLOCK)

The YWCA will provide snacks for the children once a day for half-day participants and twice a day for full day participants. Snacks will consist of a fruit or veggie option, a cracker/cookie option and a water/juice option. If your child has an allergy and you would like to provide us with your own snacks, that is permissible and we will keep your child’s snack separate and safe for the week. Friday is fun day and we will serve ice pops in the afternoon.


If your child is staying for the lunch hour or is a full day camper, parents are to provide a non-perishable lunch each day for their child. We do not have refrigeration for lunch boxes so please make sure that you include an ice pack in all lunch bags.

In consideration of the many food allergies children have today, the YWCA appreciates your cooperation with the elimination of any food products that contain nut or nut products from our campus.
