Fisher Children's Center

Preparing the Next Generation

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everyone around them. At the Armed Services YMCA, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Fisher Children's Center Overview

The Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton offers Nationally accredited, low-cost, high-quality child care at our Fisher Children’s Center.

Armed Services YMCA offers affordable, accessible, high-quality child care services and preschool programs for military children. Our trained, dedicated, and caring staff prepare children for future success by teaching social skills, creativity, literacy, and fine and gross motor skills.

Active-duty families have an overwhelming need for child care. Affordable child care can increase a military family’s financial security and well-being, allowing service members to stay focused on their mission, and providing spouses and partners the opportunity to work and pursue education. With military spouse unemployment rates averaging six times that of the national average, accessible child care is vital to military family readiness and resilience.

Access to affordable, reliable, and high-quality child care opportunities provide families with financial stability and family resilience. For military families in particular, child care is essential to the mission readiness of the service member and to the employment of the military spouse.

Additionally, children enrolled in a high-quality child development program:

  • receive quality early education that fosters cognitive and socioemotional growth;
  • build the cognitive and character skills that children need to do well in school and in life, including attentiveness, persistence, impulse control, and sociability;
  • build foundations for long-term success in life;
  • are more likely to earn higher wages, live healthier lives, and raise stronger families.

The Armed Services YMCA Fisher Children’s Center offers full-time, part-time, and part day childcare services for active duty military families ages 6 weeks – 5 years old.
