Child Care

Youth development is key when you're with your child, and especially when you're not. The Y offers numerous before, afterschool and summer child care programs to keep your child safe, healthy and active. Child Watch is also available for our Y Family Members while you're working out. Child care at the Y will keep you and your children healthy in spirit, mind and body.

PLEASE NOTE: All families who wish to enroll their child in any of our 2017 Summer, 2017-18 Before/Afterschool or Preschool programs must answer the 2017 Child Information Questions to complete your child’s registration. You may do this through your online account before or after registering for a program. (If you do not have access to a computer, you may fill out a paper form at your Lincoln YMCA’s Front Desk.)

Deadlines to answer the 2017 Child Information Questions:

  • Before & Afterschool Programs: March 1, 2017
  • Summer Day Camps: April 1, 2017
  • Preschool: May 1, 2017

IMPORTANT: Completing the Child Information Questions does not guarantee them a spot in any YMCA child care program, however it is required by the above dates to complete registration. To be fair to all families wishing to register, failure to complete the questions (online or at your Y) by the deadline will result in forfeiting your child’s registration in the program.
