Value Added

The Y offers families the opportunity to participate in many activities not found in most traditional child care programs, including:

• FREE family memberships to families enrolled five days per week (a $900 value)
• Quarterly family events
• Financial assistance based on family need
• State-subsidized slots are available, and PACE vouchers are accepted

Health and Safety

Your child’s health and safety is our number one priority. Our centers are state licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care, and each program meets rigid health and safety regulations. Our staff are certified in CPR and first aid and staff are screened through criminal background record checks and receive annual child safety training.

Flexible days and hours

Y before- and after-school programs provide year-round care. We understand parents’ need to work, and we have a variety of program options during school vacations, snow days, teacher in-service days, and summer.
