YMCA School Age Care allows children the opportunity to explore, build friendships, develop new skills and discover their creativity. YMCA staff focus on character development and emphasize accomplishments and successes in all participants.
Our programs are safe and full of fun activities that encourage physical activity, social interaction, educational opportunities, personal growth and creativity. All YMCA staff attend trainings that cover YMCA mission, character development and child abuse prevention.
PROFESSIONAL ROLE MODELS
Our staff are “Professional Role Models” selected based on their experience, attitude, skills and their ability to EXPECT and demonstrate the YMCA Core Values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Y will continue providing state-licensed childcare in our best effort to meet community needs. Now, maybe more than ever, it is necessary to give kids a place to be kids and families peace of mind that their child is well cared for as we all continue to bounce back from incredibly stressful times for everyone.
The Y’s School Age Childcare programs are eligible for Flexible Pricing options through the Y and we continue to accept Wisconsin Shares Childcare Subsidy payments.
