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 after-school child care programs, we create a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills.
In partnership with seven area Private and Parochial schools, we provide after-school care for students in kindergarten through 8th grade that attend participating schools.
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.

At the Y, our school-age child care programs offer programming designed to enrich and inspire learning. In addition to our usual after-school activities that encourage academic enrichment, building self-esteem, healthy snacks and physical activity, we also have engaging theme-based activities.
We'll offer a full day of activities from 7 am to 6 pm for participants (traffic and weather permitting).
Snow day care is available for currently registered participants only and operates on a first-come, first-served basis. If a site reaches capacity, you may be asked to choose another location. Children should bring a sack lunch along with a hat, gloves, boots and a warm coat.
In order for children to attend child care during in-service days, registration must be completed. We will have sign-up sheets at all of our sites during each in-service day. Spaces are limited so sign up early! Unfortunately, full day care is not available for children in preschool.
Please send your child with a non-refrigerated sack lunch, we'll provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack. If your site is going on a field trip, please drop off your child by the designated time in order to ensure care for the day
In-service days will be included in your child's attendance for the week unless the full day is the only day they attend. If your child is signed up for a specific day, you will be charged for the full day of care, regardless of attendance.
When school is out, the Y is here! Our school break camps keep kids active, engaged, and active in a fun and safe environment. We offer full-day care during school breaks.
