Mission: Provide our young members with a safe and fun environment to learn, foster friendships, and explore character-building activities that will shape the rest of their lives.

The Y provides a wide range of activities for children ages 6 weeks through 8th grade all year long. All of the Y’s programs focus on providing a fun and safe atmosphere for our youth while fostering the passion for lifelong health and wellness.

The Y in the Park resides in a restored and remodeled historic log building in Buffalo’s Washington City Park and further expands the Y’s mission of serving the community. This beautiful spacious lodge serves as the base for our Full Day Child Care.

Full Day Child Care

Johnson County Family YMCA Child Care is open to members and non-members alike. Our Child Care offers slots for Full Day, Half Day (AM or PM), and 2 Hour AM (8 am – 10 am or 10 am – 12 pm).

Gym & Swim

The focus of our preschool gym & swim program is to help develop your child’s gross motor skills through active play. The swim classes will consist of water safety, stroke development, and water games. The gym classes will focus on games, sports, and activities that help develop teamwork, sportsmanship, and kinetic awareness.

All of the gym & swim classes are high energy and are sure to help your preschooler make friends, memories, and learn new skills. We welcome all preschoolers that are 4-6 years old. Children must be able to dress/undress themselves for swimming.
