Y Academy: One of the Best Choices Parents Can Make

The YMCA offers safe, affordable, and professional infant and preschool programs.

Why choose the Y?

  • We provide quality, structured learning and expert care, all in a warm and secure setting built on the values of the YMCA. 
  • Y Academy is different from other childcare settings because it fosters a sense of family with every interaction. It ís a close-knit community where children become friends, teachers love the kids like their own, and parents get to know each other beyond drop-offs and pick-ups.
  • The YMCA is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable childcare with family-centered, values-based programs to nurture children's healthy development. 
  • Well-trained staff provide safe, affordable, expert care so you can have peace of mind while you work. Like all Y programs, Y Academy is open to all, with financial assistance available. Staff members are partners with parents, and other caregivers, working together to help kids grow up healthy, happy and strong.
