YMCA child care offers a nurturing, caring environment.

Child Care and After School

YMCAs are the nation’s largest provider of child care. We provide high-quality and affordable programs that are family-centered and values-based to nurture children’s healthy development. Our preschool and school-age child care programs encourage family involvement through special events, newsletters, parent advisory committees, and volunteers in the classrooms. The programs are state licensed, and all staff meet or exceed licensing regulations for background checks, education and experience.

Whether your child needs preschool or school-age care, we emphasize values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Like all Y programs, child care is open to all, with financial assistance available.

Mission: The YMCA of Silicon Valley Kinder-Readiness Program will provide a nurturing environment for children to increase independence, improve self-concept, and focus on values in a stimulating, hands-on learning environment, while developing the necessary skills to successfully transition into kindergarten.

Local school districts have designed content standards/student outcomes that the YMCA utilizes in this program. These standards are consistent with the new pre-K learning and development guidelines that work with literacy and learning programs through the state of California.

->After School Enrichment

This program is designed as a free After School comprehensive program for today’s changing society, not only for working families but also to enrich children’s lives. The program is a combination of several components. It must be emphasized that it is not to be an extension of the school but rather compliment school in a manner that is fun for the child.  A long term goal of the program is to help the child develop socially through small group work while emphasizing the child as an individual. Program participants are divided into small groups based on age and maturity.
