Child Care

Learn, Grow & Thrive with YMCA Child Care

Welcome, we’re so glad you found us. The YMCA is the largest child care provider in the United States, so our trusted brand is one that you can count on. Our child care programs integrate social-emotional development, physical activity and academic enrichment and are aligned with the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our staff are youth development professionals who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and receive extensive training in evidence-based practice and theory.

Meeting community needs has been centric to the mission of The Granite YMCA since its inception in 1854. We know that high-quality, safe and accessible childcare programs are critical for community success. Across 30+ sites, the Y is meeting this community need through both early learning and school age childcare programs. We recognize the support that families need and believe in the adage that it takes a village, and we cannot wait to welcome you to ours.

For BRIGHT FUTURES

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

At the YMCA, we understand the importance of supporting families in need, which is why we offer financial assistance to eligible families. We gladly accept State of New Hampshire reimbursements to ease the burden of child care costs. To benefit from these programs, simply provide proof of assistance and a completed child care provider form (1863) during registration. We want every family to feel welcome and supported, so we encourage families receiving financial assistance to stay current with their payments for a smooth experience. While the state’s reimbursements are a great help, families are responsible for any remaining fees not covered. Please note that the state typically does not cover absences, late or no-call fees, or days when your child is picked up early and doesn’t meet the minimum attendance hours. At the YMCA, we are committed to working together as a family-oriented community to ensure every child has the best care possible.
