Child Care

Child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It's about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and building self-reliance.

We put safety first with a sign-in-and-out procedure practiced at all times. Parents must remain in the Y facility while their child is in our care.
