YWCA Minneapolis recently partnered with PNC Bank this spring to offer children in our Early Childhood Education Program engaging and educational opportunities.

Virtual African Safari

As part of PNC’s Grow Up Great program, preschool children in our ECE Program had the opportunity to go on a virtual African safari. Led by their safari guide and with binoculars in hand, children learned about and viewed five different animals in their natural habitat: elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes and meerkats.

“I liked the binoculars because they made the animals bigger.” — YWCA Early Learner

“The giraffe has a long purple tongue that he licks his nose with. ” — YWCA Early Learner

Equipping Children to Reach Their Potential

Through high-quality child care and early learning programs, YWCA Minneapolis helps children develop their individual interests and skills, connect with peers and build positive behaviors to support their academic success and become well-rounded learners for life.

YWCA’s award-winning programs, staff, facilities and teaching initiatives have helped thousands of Minneapolis children prepare for life in and beyond school. We help prepare all Minnesotan children to thrive — creating a sense of belonging in the classroom with our anti-bias curriculum and pushing to eliminate the educational opportunity gap in our state for families from all races, ethnicities, cultures and incomes.
