YMCA OF LANSING

 Child Care

 

YMCA is the largest provider of childcare around the nation. We believe in providing high-quality and affordable programs that are family-centered. We focus our programs around values aimed to nurture children’s healthy development. With our preschool and school age childcare programs, you as parents always have the opportunity to stay involved. Whether it is through special events, newsletters, parent advisory committees, or volunteering in the classroom. Our programs are state licensed, and all staff meet or exceed licensing regulations for background checks, education and experience. In all of our programs we emphasize values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Childcare is open to all, with financial assistance available.

 

Y Child Development Center (6 weeks to 5 years old)

 

YMCA Child Care Center is a safe and secure place. Here, children learn and grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. We provide a caring, qualified staff, a stimulating child centered environment and a wide range of activities designed to meet the developmental needs and interests of young children. Our program is uniquely designed for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. We provide breakfast, lunch and snack according to federal nutritional food program standards. The Oak Park YMCA Y Child Care Center follows a play-based, creative curriculum.

 

The Center is open year round, 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday.
