CHILD CARE PROGRAMS - CENTRAL

 

2021/2022 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! 

CHILD CARE YOU CAN TRUST

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get.  That’s why child care at the Lake County YMCA is about more than looking after kids.  It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn, developing healthy, trusting relationships and building self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The Central YMCA offers safe, flexible, affordable and convenient preschool and after-school child care. Our programs are STAR rated and licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
