Middletown Family YMCA Childcare

At the Middletown Family YMCA, we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why childcare 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.
