School Age Childcare (K-5)

Building Strong & Bright Futures For Your Children.

With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That’s why child care at the YMCA of Greater Whittier focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Our Affordable for All Scholarship Program is provided on a sliding scale up to 30% off weekly childcare fees. Ask your Site Director for more information.

What does our program include:

  • Professional and caring classroom staff
  • Staff trained to support distance learning programs
  • Healthy meals and snacks
  • Covid-19 prevention procedures (as recommended by the LA County Department of Public Health)
