School Days Off

About the program

During the school year, when schools close for parent/teacher conference days, single day holidays and longer holiday breaks, the YMCA offers full-day child care at select branches so that kids have a place to play and learn.

(Notes: Pre-registration may be necessary. Dates may vary by school district so parents should check their school district calendars).
