YMCAs are the nation’s largest provider of child care. We provide high-quality and affordable programs that are family-centered and values-based to nurture children’s healthy development.
With today’s demands on working parents, more and more parents are seeking out trusted resources to watch their children while they are at work. Each branch within the Channel Islands YMCA offers school-age child care at local school sites, offering working parents a safe haven for their children outside of regular school hours.
At the Y, we believe that Before and After School Programs should provide every child with a well-balanced, comfortable, and nurturing program to continue their education while making new friends and enjoying FUN supervised activities!
Here's 10 facts about our Before & After School programs for you to ensure your child is in a safe, thriving, and encouraging environment:
Like all Y programs, child care is open to all, with financial assistance available.
