Bear-Glasgow Family YMCA Childcare

2022/2023 School Year registration opens April 25th for current participants and May 9th for non-participants.

At the Bear-Glasgow Family YMCA, we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why child care at the Y focuses on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn fundamental skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-esteem through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
