Your children are discovering the exciting world around them. That’s why we carefully design every activity to expand your child’s imagination and encourage lifelong learning and positive values. The YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility lay the foundation for our high quality child care experience. In our school age program your child will learn the importance of making good choices, working in a group and improving problem solving skills all while playing games and creating.
As a service to our summer school age program participants, we offer 5 credit days per summer for full-time/full fee parents. Credit days may be used when children are absent from the program. Families receiving financial assistance, sibling discounts, or employee benefits will not be eligible for credit days. Families receiving CCIS funding will receive 5 credit days per family NOT per child. All credit days must be used in one year.
