Child Care

Ages: 8 weeks – 5 years

Child care programs help youngsters gain self-confidence and social skills while developing positive attitudes about school and learning.  Our programs are NAEYC accredited and allow parents to go to work with peace of mind knowing that their children are being cared for in a safe, structured and fun environment.  We are committed to providing a safe, loving environment for your child and aspire to meet his/her needs while promoting physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.

Our programs develop weekly curriculum with age appropriate activities and indoor and outdoor learning experiences.  We also participate in the CACFP food program to ensure that all children receive healthy meals and snacks throughout the day.

After School Program

Ages: K-8th grade

What are your kids doing after school?  At YMCA School Age Child Care program kids build self-esteem, values and leadership skills.  You’ll know they are growing and exploring their potential; they’ll think they are just having fun!  Our After School Program provides a safe environment where kids can focus on developing confidence and character with trained teachers and site directors guiding them.  Our programs teach positive values for youth ages 5 to 11 years through role models, group activities and creative thought.  Children enjoy supervised activities including homework time and a variety of recreational activities and games rather than the company of the TV set or the local street corner.  A snack is also provided for those students.  Programs run throughout the school year, with vacation days available too!
