MADISON, NJ - The Madison Area YMCA has extended its services to include the management of Madison Day Care Center, an entity of Cornerstone Family Programs that has been an important part of the Madison community providing affordable childcare and preschool services for 48 years.

“We are very pleased that by collaborating with Cornerstone Family Programs and Grace Episcopal Church we are able to welcome the children and families of Madison Day Care Center into the Madison Area YMCA community,” said Y President & CEO Diane Mann. “Bringing Madison Day Care into the Y’s operations extends our mission of helping to assure that families have access to quality early childhood education regardless of their income levels.”

Madison Day Care is a critical resource that provides affordable, quality childcare and preschool services in a safe, nurturing environment to an underserved population in our community. The only center in Madison that accepts dedicated government-supported subsidies for families who could not otherwise afford professional childcare, Madison Day Care will continue to operate at Grace Episcopal Church in Madison as part of the Madison Area YMCA under the management of the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center. Ms. Rosemary Adamo of the Kirby Center is the director. The Boards of Directors at Cornerstone Family Programs and the Madison Area YMCA, as well as the clergy and lay leadership of Grace Episcopal Church worked together this spring to ensure the viability of this valuable community resource, which resulted in the transition of management and operations to the Madison Area YMCA. For more information about the Madison Day Care Center, please contact Madison Day Care Center Director Rosemary Adamo or F. M. Kirby Children’s Center Executive Director Harriet McCarter at 973-377-4945.
