The Granite YMCA Child Care

At The Granite YMCA, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our school age and early learning programs focus on providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

In our child care centers toddlers develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age children make friends, learn new skills and get to be physically active after school. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

  • Bright Future Start Here. Open year round, registration for the YMCA's Early Learning Centers is ongoing on a space-available basis.

  • Financial Assistance

    Financial Assistance

    At the Y, we do offer financial assistance for those families in need. We also accept State of New Hampshire reimbursements. Proof of assistance and a completed child care provider form (2530) must be provided at time of registration. All families who receive financial assistance, whether through the Y or the State, must also stay current with their payments. Families are responsible for all fees not paid by the state. The state will not generally pay for any absences, nor will they pay late or no-call fees, or for days in which your child is picked up early and does not attend the minimum number of hours.

    To learn more, please contact your local Y’s Child Care Department.
