Childcare & Education

A SAFE AND NURTURING PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD TO PLAY, GROW AND LEARN

At the Y, babies develop trust and security; preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world; and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today and contributing engaged adults tomorrow.

Rest assured, your kids are in good hands at the Y. Our Child Care, Afterschool and Preschool staff understand the cognitive, physical and social development of children. We recognize the need children have to feel connected and supported, as well as the care and reinforcement parents and families need. All staff are trained in First Aid/CPR and receive special instruction related to safety and child development.


Following updated recommendations from the CDC, Governor Cooper, public school systems and our state and local health departments, we are temporarily suspending all YMCA member access, activities and programs from our branches and camps. This includes facility access, group fitness classes and wellness programs/activities in all YMCA branches.
