Childcare

Many people do not realize that, as a whole, the YMCA is the largest provider of child care in the United States. We believe that the quality of child care cannot be undervalued and thus every YMCA program is grounded in our character development traits of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

Activities in our curriculum include health and wellness, arts and humanities, science and technology and service learning projects. Each of the YMCA Child Care programs are designed with age appropriate activities created to help your child grow and develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.

In Case of Illness

The Y offers a Child Watch Facility that renders “well child services.” We appreciate your respect for other children and our staff by keeping your child at home until he/she is well. Please remember what might not be serious for your child could turn into a serious illness for another. This policy will be strictly enforced. We welcome all comments, concerns and questions. Certain symptoms suggest the presence of communicable disease. Children who have the following symptoms should remain home until symptom-free for at least 24 hours, unless otherwise instructed by physician: Nasal/eye drainage (of any kind), Coughing, Fever, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Sore Throat, Skin rashes (undiagnosed or contagious), Infected sores with yellow or green discharge which cannot be covered by clothing or bandages. If children exhibit any of these symptoms during their stay in the Child Watch program, the parent/guardian will be asked to pick up their child.

Sign-In Procedure

Please sign your child/children in the log book and receive a numbered pick-up card for your child that matches their security bracelet(s). Sign in the appropriate time of arrival. Also write your exact location in the YMCA during your time of service and if jogging outside, please leave a cell number in which you can be reached in case of emergency or sickness. Please label or mark with permanent marker, your child’s belongings or please sign out the time you are leaving with your child. We ask that you do not allow your child to bring any electronic devices with them. They are costly and we will not be responsible for them.
