Child Care Announcement from Willoughby Eastlake Superintendant, Steve Thompson

Welcome to the West End Y School Age Child Care program. We offer flexible before
and after care to all children in grades K - 5 in the Willoughby Eastlake elementary schools.
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering
a sense of social responsibility, the Lake County YMCA ensures that every individual has
access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Our Y child care programs focus on nurturing child development by providing a
safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting
relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty,
respect and responsibility.

There is currently a wait list at all schools for Y-CARE,
before and after school.
  • To get on the wait list, please complete the Y-registration form, and all JFS
    required forms, and turn into either your Elementary School office or the West End Y. 
  • All paperwork will be forwarded to your Child Care Site Administrator.
  • You will be contacted by your Administrator when there is an opening.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
