Child Care Services East End






With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get.  That’s why child care at the Y 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 East End Y offers care for ages three years through second grade. Programs are licensed by the Ohio Department of Human Services. Our full-facility YMCA provides an outside playground, gymnasium with age-appropriate play equipment, swimming pool and fully-equipped child care area that fosters fun and learning in a safe and caring environment.
