The values and skills learned early in life are vital building blocks for a successful adulthood, and we believe all kids deserve a strong start and a safe place to grow. Parents trust the Y’s child care programs to support and nurture their children from infancy through the teen years and help them become strong, capable, and engaged young people.


Child Watch

We help members achieve balance by watching their kids while they work out. Child Watch is offered at all five Lincoln YMCAs.
