YMCA child care offers a nurturing, caring environment.

YMCA Child Care

YMCA’s 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. 


Create & Play Preschool Program

(Ages 3 – 6)

The Create & Play Preschool Program provides a warm and welcoming environment for children ages 3-6 years old. Our Program incorporates the Illinois Early Learning Standards into our curriculum, including physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. We believe children learn through creative play and many hands on experiences. Phonics is also used to teach literacy skills. Children will become empowered through the use of their words. Our passionate, caring and experienced teachers will make your child’s preschool experience a memorable one. All children must be completely toilet trained prior to attending preschool.
