The Y’s half-day preschool program provides enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs of each individual child by working in partnership with their families. Our preschools are licensed by the State of Missouri, and provide a curriculum that focuses on education, leadership and character development.
Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Program
In Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Programs, kids engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. Get high-quality Y care right at your school and keep your child active physically, intellectually and socially the whole day. When school's out, you can trust the Y to provide an engaging experience for your child right at school.
Summer Day Camp
YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because we offer experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence, and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a huge variety of camp themes, so there’s always a place for your kids at Y camp.
Schools Out Camp
Enjoy your day off from school with the Y. When school is closed, students can still enjoy a day full of fun, activities, games, crafts, swimming, and more!
While you're increasing your heart rate, your kids can play, release some energy and make new friends in a supervised, caring environment - all free with your Y family membership. Your kids will have fun with age-appropriate toys, games, and activities. Children ages 6 weeks to 12 years are welcome up to 3 hours per day and parent/guardian must remain at the Y.
Kids Night Out
At the Y, we know parents need a break from time to time. With Kids Night Out, parents enjoy a night out while kids engage in fun and safe activities at the Y, including games, crafts, swimming, food, and more!
