Early Childhood Education

For those times when you can’t be there yourself, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where your child will learn, grow and thrive. Our Early Childhood Center is licensed by the State of Illinois and all child care staff members receive extensive training through the national YMCA of the USA as well as through the Gateway Region YMCA.

Y Club: A Before & After School Enrichment Program

Looking for a before and after school program? Y Club supplements what students have learned in school, while they engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with homework from trained YMCA staff, have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships.

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!

Summer Day Camp

YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside of 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 variety of camp themes, so there’s always a place for your kids at Y camp.
