A typical day at the YMCA may include time to work on your homework, a snack in the morning and afternoon, arts and crafts, group games, and time to play your favorite board games or Knex/Legos with friends. Reflected in each of these activities and staff are the YMCA values of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service.


At the root of our 150 year-old organization is our mission statement: To put the Christian principles of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Often we are asked, "What does the YMCA consider as Christian principles?" They are defined as the five values of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service. These values are reflected in our programs, activities and staff.

Support Services:

No matter how many hours children spend in child care, family is still the most important structure in their lives. YMCA Child Care programs are most effective at building strong kids when we work with the whole family, rather than addressing your child’s developmental needs alone.


Experienced and caring staff set up just this type of environment where youth are encouraged to make their own choices within a variety of activities.

Homework time Games
Snack time Science
Special events

Field Trip Destinations: Possible destinations may include local parks, the Oregon Zoo, OMSI and other great destinations.
Program Information:

YMCA Child Care is a division of the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette, which provides services in the Portland and Vancouver regional area. We are the largest nonprofit provider of quality, affordable child care in the community. YMCA Child Care operates early childhood development, school age and summer day camp programs.

  • The well being of your child is #1.
  • You can depend on us every day, so you can focus on the reason you need childcare – your job.
  • Research consistently shows that high quality child care helps kids grow socially, emotionally and cognitively. The YMCA's experience and mission leads to high quality care.
  • YMCA child care members get up to 75% off Y facility membership rates, providing a great opportunity for families to recreate together.
  • With more than 55 locations, including child development centers and school age locations, you'll likely find YMCA child care on your route to work.
  • Next to having great parents, children need caring non-parent role models in their lives.
  • YMCA staff love kids and are well trained.
  • YMCA programs are open to all – regardless of ability to pay.

Slogan: Your Kids are Y.
