Live. Laugh. GROW!
Here at the YMCA, we understand the need for childcare and are here to provide you with qualified individuals. Our childcare is staffed with people who fully understand children's cognitive, physical, and social development. All of our childcare areas meet the need for a clean and safe environment for youth to thrive with our staff and other children whether parents are trying to get a workout in, working, or maybe getting time to themselves.
At the Y, infants develop trust and security, pre-schoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and get help with schoolwork.
For more information on YMCA Childcare, contact Taryn Leonard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Y Club Afterschool Program is for any child age 5-12. Children receive homework help from qualified, trained staff members, enjoy a healthy afternoon snack and participate in purposeful play in a safe, nurturing environment.
Kids Night Out
Parents can enjoy a night out while the kids engage in fun and safe activities at Kids Night Out at the Y! Children will enjoy games, crafts, movies, and more with Y staff.
No School Days
When school is out, the Y is in! Have your child spend the day with us roller skating, swimming, enjoying games, and more!
We are proud to offer childcare services for any children ages 6 weeks old to 8 years old. This service is free to any child that is on an active membership with the YMCA and is located in the facility itself. If the child(ren) is not on an active membership but their guardian is, then the charge for using the childwatch area is $3 per visit per child. There is a two-hour limit per day.
Hours are as follows:
Monday- Saturday 8:30am-10:30am
Monday- Thursday 4:00pm-7:00pm
Camp Osage helps children develop to their full potential by focusing on interpersonal relationships, character development, academic achievement, physical skills, and health and nutrition.
