Year Round Full Day Care ages 6 weeks through 5 years

YMCA Child Care programs strengthen families and boost youth development by offering infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families early learning readiness experiences and comprehensive child development programs. Our day care program addresses the development of young children by supporting early literacy, brain development, and healthy habit development. These early learning experiences at the Y lay the foundation for future ongoing achievement and success. We strive to provide a safe, nurturing center and a developmentally appropriate curriculum in a child-centered environment of warmth, friendliness and freedom.  
Your child will have opportunities for exploring, experimenting and questioning that encourages curiosity, creativity and expression. We provide opportunities to develop self-confidence, social skills and gross and fine motor skills. Children will learn about the world around them in our state licensed program. Our YMCA center is equipped with webcams, so you can check in on your child any time you choose. And with a swimming pool and gymnasium at our disposal, our’s is the only center in the area that offers weekly swimming activities for preschoolers. 

Many families don’t realize they are eligible for assistance with their child care fees. We help families through the    process. Please feel free to contact us about our People Helping People Scholarships and financial assistance.
