Child Care

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

At the Y, we offer the options you may be looking for in our Early Childhood Development Programs, Preschool, and Afterschool programs. With locations throughout the Long Island community, our programs have a history of helping children grow in spirit, mind and body.
