Here for Children & Families

The YMCA is one of the nation’s largest and most trusted providers of child care services. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and impact on our community, we’re here to support the evolving needs in education, as a Y Academy partner to schools and families who need safe, affordable educational enrichment and child care.

The YMCA Academy will be offering a safe and enriching full day program 2 to 5 days a week*, with flexible time options for parents who need to return to work while virtual learning is in session. Students will receive support with virtual programming lessons and activities, physical fitness, STEAM challenges, social-emotional learning, and more!
