In YMCA Early Learning programs, children will learn in a nurturing environment. With highly trained teachers and staff, our premier child care centers cater to parents that value their children's education. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment for young children to learn, thrive, and grow.   

Our programs are designed to meet the developmental needs of young children ages six weeks to five years. We provide experiences that enhance and enrich each child’s cognitive, language, social emotional, physical and creative development. Each class is designed to foster each child’s ability to develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-directed activities and teacher-assisted activities. Opportunities for solitary play, as well as group activities are provided.

Child Care for School Age Children is available through our Summer Day Camp programs.


  • Quality Education Program in a nurturing environment
  • Nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack


Due to lower ratios set by the State of Ohio, space in our child care programs is extremely limited. In addition, our rates have been increased as a result of the new ratios. Our hope is that this will be a temporary change and that when ratios return to a normal level, the weekly rate will lower as well.
Early Learning Center Rate : $250/week
The above rate is for full time child care; part-time, all day child care is offered based on availability. Those who cannot afford the above rates are encouraged to apply for child care assistance through the County Department of Jobs & Family Services, YMCA Financial Assistance is also available.
