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.




We are pleased to offer a distinctive, whole-student learning approach for K-12 students impacted by COVID-19. The E-Learning Academy will take place in multiple area YMCA facilities and has been designed to support the online education and instruction your student will receive from school this fall.

The YMCA E-Learning Academy features:

  • Safe, WiFi-connected environment for students to complete school-assigned online instruction
  • On-site education support and tutoring
  • Peer connection and social-emotional development including CircleUp check-ins
  • Y Selectives, including fitness and athletic training, arts and hobbies, leadership development, and more

In addition to the E-Learning Academy, we have also adapted our After School Academy to meet the changing needs of our schools, students, and families.
