YMCA Child Development Center

Child Care


At the Y we strive to offer the most affordable licensed childcare we can for our community. Our YMCA Childcare offers a variety of childcare options to best fit your needs. The Y offers Full Day or Before and After School classes for ages two and a half up to twelve years of age. Our hours of operations are 6:30 am to 6:00 pm for the main center at the YMCA and after school until 6:00 pm for After School care held at the elementary schools. Our Childcare facility partners with Virginia Quality which focuses on early learning and Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) to ensure the children are getting healthy low sugar meals to help them preform at their best. 


Our Before and After School Program is for children that are school age. This program is great for children who's parents work either early in the morning or late in the evenings. This program encourages learning through play and literacy through story time as well as help with homework in the evenings.  With this program your child is provided with breakfast and an afternoon snack. This program has a registration fee of $25.00 and is $60.00 per week. Children can be picked up by the bus at the YMCA in the mornings and dropped off by the bus in the evenings.  

We also offer After School Care at two of our Elementary Schools. We hold evening only care at Critzer and Pulaski Elementary Schools. With this program staff offer help with homework and promote literacy for all children enrolled.
