Deb Galipeault
Childcare & Youth Development Director

Deb grew up in Hudson, NH where she graduated from Alvirne High School. She graduated from Rivier College where she earned a degree in Early Childhood Education.

Deb started her Early Childhood career working with preschool students at Tollhouse Preschool. In 1998 she moved to Concord and stayed home with her children until 2001 when she began her YMCA of Concord journey. Deb taught pre-kindergarten, worked as the assistant childcare director, and for a short time worked as an assistant to the finance director. Then, in 2008, she was promoted to the Youth Development Director overseeing all of their Youth Programs to include childcare, afterschool and summer day camp. Having a background in Early Childhood Education and having young children of her own, it was important to her to find a child development center with the highest quality. A place that she could feel comfortable knowing her children were receiving the best educational foundation possible. When Deb interviewed at the Y and met the staff she knew the Y was the best place around. In 2006 She moved over an hour away to Moultonborough, NH. Despite the commute, and because the YMCA of Concord had become a home away from home, Deb stayed all these years commuting two hours each day. Her three now adult children have so many wonderful memories from growing up at the Y and Deb feels blessed that they were able to be part of the YMCA of Concord family.

In Deb’s free time, she enjoys walking with her dogs, watching sports and trail riding with her ATV.
