My daughter attends a preschool program at our local YMCA and we absolutely love it! The YMCA has been a great place for our family personally because they really do invest in the children, give back to the community, and celebrate diversity in many forms.
The mission of the YMCA is:
The mission of the YMCA of Metro Chicago is to develop strong children, families and communities across Metropolitan Chicago through academic readiness, character development, violence prevention, fitness and healthy living.
I jumped at the chance to capture images of the preschool program for the fabulous teacher Miss Robin because I want to celebrate and share the learning and laughter that happens at the Y. Children learning together is good stuff.
Here are some of my favorite images from this year so far. You can also see Hawa Images in the newest program guide.
