Our Child Care Services


YMCA Childcare: Where Every Child Grows with Love, Learning, and Laughter.

At the YMCA, we foster holistic development—nurturing your child’s spirit, mind, and body! Our carefully crafted learning environment ensures that your child not only achieves academic and social-emotional milestones but also relishes every moment, making friends and having fun along the way!

Central to our program philosophy is the belief that children learn best through play. We guide young minds to make choices based on their interests, empowering them to learn naturally. Our early education teachers serve as mentors, educators, and facilitators of enjoyable learning experiences.

Your child’s well-being is our priority. Within our care, they stay healthy, active, and engaged in a secure environment. Moreover, our Young Explorer preschool includes swim lessons at our newly renovated YMCA swimming pool—a unique offering that adds an extra dimension to their educational journey.

By attending the Y’s Young Explorer Preschool, your child will be fully prepared for kindergarten, equipped with essential skills and confidence.

Our program caters to children aged 3 to 5 years old, where they’ll explore:

Early Academics (STEM)

Healthy Living (including gardening and nutrition)

Physical Fitness (featuring swim lessons and play)

Cultivating New Friendships

Artistic and Musical Expression

Understanding Culture and Community

Enroll your child in the YMCA’s Preschool Program today and watch them thrive in a nurturing, diverse, and enriching educational setting!
