About the Program
Y Club school-age youth programs
Growing strong kids; meeting the needs of communities; strengthening families; and helping children to grow have always been central to the YMCA's mission and philosophy.
Through YMCA child care programs, we do just that.
YMCA Child Care Facts
- The YMCA is the largest provider of child care in the State of Missouri.
- All Early Childhood Education Centers and Y Club school-age care centers are licensed by the State of Missouri.
- We care for more than 5,400 kids in Y Club school-age child care programs and another 500 in Early Childhood Education Centers every day.
- We care for children six weeks through eighth grade.
- Our staff is well-trained. All child care staff members receive extensive training through national YMCA of the USA, and local YMCA of Greater St. Louis training.

- We are advocates for children, and we want our voice to be heard on the national, state and local level.
We're involved with the National School Age Child Care Alliance, National Association for the Education of Young Children, Missouri School-Age Child Care Community, the St. Louis Youth Provider Network, Child Day Care Association, St. Louis Partnership and United Way.
