Child Care

At the YMCA, a gym membership gets you access to more than fitness equipment and pools. Members get access to childcare while they workout, as well as discounts for our Early Learning, Before and Aftercare, and Summer Camp programs.

At YMCA Silver Spring, our high quality child care programs ensure that parents can confidently work towards their professional and personal goals, knowing that their children are in a warm and welcoming environment with active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds

Child Watch

Available Monday to Friday from 4 – 8 PM.  To ensure everyone has time to stay fit, the YMCA lets members drop off their child (6 weeks or older) to have fun with our trained and certified staff for up to two hours.

School Age Programs (Before and After Care)

From 7 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, YMCA Silver Spring offers childcare programs that intentionally foster the emotional, social, and physical development of children from all backgrounds. Our trained and certified childcare professionals help make sure kids build academic and social skills, as well as self-confidence and healthy habits outside the school day. With swimming, sports, games, homework support, STEM programs, and arts and crafts, there’s never a dull moment for our students.

We offer full-time, holiday, and drop-in care. Financial assistance is available to help ensure everyone has access to high-quality childcare. 

Early Learning Center

For children 18 months to 5 years old, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m the YMCA offers a warm, inclusive, and nurturing pre-school environment. Our evidence-based curriculum is designed to go beyond the ABCs and 123s to boost social-emotional and 21st Century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, confidence, communication, and collaboration. Outside the classroom, certified and trained staff ensure children also build healthy habits and essential skills that last a lifetime. 

Summer Camps

YMCA traditional and specialty camps appeal to kids with different interests, but each one is designed to help children become competent, confident, connected, and compassionate adults that contribute to their community.

Whether your child wants to have fun during classic camp games, play a sport, explore STEM, try their hand at crafts, take to the stage, or try something brand new, Summer Camps at the YMCA Silver Spring  will fill summertime with friends and fun!

All camp registrants must have either a community or family membership. Each offers different rates and discount opportunities.

Our core values of respect, responsibility, care, and honesty anchor every sport we offer. From soccer to swimming, tennis to Tae kwon do, our professional and volunteer coaches help players tap into the thrill of competition, pursue their goals, build grit and determination, and develop resilience and optimism.
