TO ASSURE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS,
we recommend a pre-registration visit of the center’s facilities. We will provide a registration packet at that time. We require that the first week’s tuition and supply fee accompany registration.
Placement in Groups
Each child progresses at his/her own rate. Readiness to handle the different demands of each group is the major factor in determining placement. We determine movement of children through their groups by chronological age, development, and space availability.
**REGISTRATION, FIRST WEEK, SUPPLY, AND ACTIVITY FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE**

Child Care staff
The Y Child Care program is successful because of the extraordinary people who make it all happen each day. All staff members meet or exceed state licensing guidelines and follow our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
The YMCA Child Watch program is designed to engage young children in games and activities, while parents can participate in an exercise class or share connections with others.
Our Early Childhood Education and Child Care programs provide nurturing, stimulating and happy environments where children feel secure to explore the world around them. Our comprehensive daycare programs offer parents consistency and continuity in care though our infant, toddler and preschool programs. Working parents can enjoy peace of mind confident that their child is well-cared for and safe at the YMCA, the largest nonprofit provider of child care in the country.
School age kids also have the opportunity to participate in STEAM activities (science, technology, engineering, arts, math), a variety of literacy activities and HEPA activities (healthy eating, physical activities).
Grades K - 6
When school's out, it's time to relax, decompress, and have fun with friends. Yet taking a break from school does not mean kids development is on vacation. Summertime at the Y focuses on the three key drivers of impact that inspire healthy youth development journeys: achievement, relationships and belonging.
Through Y summer programs, the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development of all youth are nurtured and celebrated, resulting in the BEST SUMMER EVER.
