Child Care

The YMCA offers warm and welcoming learning environment for children of all backgrounds. Our highly trained and credentialed staff members follow a curriculum proven to help children of all ages build essential skills. Beyond literacy, math, and science, students strengthen their creativity and critical thinking. They learn how to make friends and be good teammates. Staff members provide rich and engaging experiences so students can build their self-motivation, grit, and resilience. Fun games and activities and nutritious foods are built into every day because at the Y, we understand that healthy children need healthy bodies AND healthy minds. We provide certified childcare for:


In our infant programs, a focus is placed on flexible programming to match your child’s developmental needs, and staff provide regular one-on-one quality attention for each child beyond meeting basic needs such as feeding, diapering, attachment, napping and communication.​ Children enjoy outside for fresh air and sunshine, as well as tummy time and playtime every day.


Our toddler caregivers set up safe and effective routines for their students to ensure they get lots of opportunities to build their physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills. Once learned, these structures give young students the boundaries they need to explore their environment and take on new challenges safely. 

Early Learning (Preschool)

In our Preschool program curriculum, we prepare children for success in school and in life by providing age-appropriate academics, as well as opportunities to solve problems, work together, build their self-esteem and their respect for others, and learn how to learn and grow. 

Before and Aftercare

To help parents that get to work early, or stay later than the school day, the YMCA is there to provide homework help, as well as the friends, fun, and physical activity that make a happy healthy childhood.
