Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. Our Child Care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids. 

FULL-TIME CHILDCARE: Y's across the country offer quality child care for infants through preschoolers, enabling parents and family members to go to work knowing their children are in safe, stimulating environments.

CHILD WATCH: Drop-in childcare is available while the parent or guardian makes use of the Y. Playful, engaging options are plentiful for young children while you exercise or connect with others over shared interests.

READY-4 LEARNING PREKINDERGARTEN: In collaboration with the Oshkosh Area School District, the Oshkosh Community offers 4-year-old pre-kindergarten at both YMCA locations.
