The Auburn YMCA  School Age Child Care Program provides safe, affordable, quality child care for children entering Kindergarten through age 12. The program is conducted and planned by YMCA staff, trained to meet the needs of children and to provide positive adult models. It is not babysitting, but a quality child care program designed with the working family in mind. The YMCA is an inclusive organization and welcomes all participants regardless of race, sex, or religion. Financial Assistance is available.

School plans are not finalized for the 2020–2021 school year, we expect guidance from the Governor soon. In the meantime, our team is hard at work, consulting with our partners at the school districts, to create a model to support parents and students.

For more information please contact School Age Child Care Director Melissa Cartner, 315-253-5304 ext 1005 or email Melissa.

Before and After School Child Care

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the uncertainty of how school will proceed in the fall we will be taking an interest list for the School Age Child Care Program. Pricing, program times and program locations are yet to be determined. Once we know how the Y will be able to conduct the program, we will contact everyone on the list.
