Oldham County After-School Child Care Program

With so many demands on today's families, parents need all the help they can get. That's why the YMCA is America's largest nonprofit child care provider. Through our affordable before- and after-school child care programs, we create a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills.

Oldham County After-School Child Care Program



The Oldham County Y offers after-school programming for students in kindergarten through 5th grade.

All of our highly trained, hand-picked staff are CPR and First Aid certified and receive extensive hours of training and professional development. We run background checks on all of our staff, so we know that we have the very best role models. Since safety is our priority, we make sure that we meet or exceed state staff-to-child ratios.
