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. We provide a mentoring relationship between each child and our caring staff that maximizes personal empowerment, exploration, and learning. At the three Thorton locations listed 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.
