In accordance with the Governor’s phased-in reopening plan for child care programs you can view our Child Care Health and Safety Plan, which follows the CDC guidance for child care programs.

Please visit the Welcome Back to the Y page for more specific information about our childcare programs.

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

The CYEDC is an Equal Opportunity Child Care Provider.
