Child Care

At YMCA Buffalo Niagara, we strive to meet the needs of our families while providing quality experiences for the children in our programs. From our specialty classes to our before and after school programs, we have something to fit your needs. Our programs are designed to develop children’s social, emotional, and developmental skills while having fun in a safe environment.

We know the upcoming school year will look different, and that’s why the Y is working hard to ensure children and families get the support they need. We currently plan to offer before and after school child care at our regular locations pending district approval. We also plan to host full day child care at several locations for remote learning days.
