Lakewood

What kids do AFTER school is as important as what they do AT school.

The YMCA's daily curriculum makes us a unique child care provider, and sets us apart from others. The YMCA provides a mentoring relationship between each child and our caring staff that maximizes personal empowerment, exploration, and learning. At three locations in Lakewood (see below), the YMCA provides a safe setting, character values, positive role models, and enrichment activities that are all part of the Y child care experience.

We will be accepting scholarships on June 15

Please read our application letter and fill out the scholarship form in order to apply.
