Full-Day Child Care Update
A little over a week ago, we announced that we are relocating our Child Care Center to the Y in the Park and transition to Full-Day Child Care on Monday, March 15th. Today we are providing an update to this process.
We have decided to relocate to the Y in the Park first on March 15th and then transition to Full-Day Child Care after Child Care has a few weeks to settle into its new home.
The first day of Full-Day Child Care is Monday, April 5th.
Until then, Child Care will remain as a Drop-In program and will stick to its current hours: 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.
The Johnson County Family YMCA recognizes the importance of quality, licensed child care providers in our community. For over 30 years, our licensed child care program has been trusted by families, members and non-members alike, to lend a helping hand with their children. Many of these children have gone on to participate in other JCFYMCA programs, such as swim lessons and youth sports, and continue to utilize our facilities as they grow into teens and adults. Things are coming full circle as we are now caring for the children of the children we served years ago. We even have staff members that were entrusted to our child care program when they were young. Now we are looking to the future.
We are excited to announce the next step in our child care journey: Full-Day Child Care
Over the past few years, we have been working to improve our facilities. Our goal has been to enhance the Y experience for everyone that walks through our doors. The size of the existing Child Care Center has limited the number of children we are able to serve and because it shares space with the gymnasium, we have not been able to expand our child care offerings, until now.
Our transition to Full-Day Child Care is coupled with the relocation of our Child Care Center to the Y in the Park.
The intimate setting provided by the Y in the Park is the perfect blend of a historic log building and new construction and goes hand-in-hand with the ample outdoor space surrounding the location. Whether they are on-site or a stone’s throw away at one of the city parks, the children in our care will have countless opportunities to explore, learn, and grow together.

- Full-day, Half-day, and Limited AM Drop-In Blocks
