Our Mission

In an ever changing world, children need a safe place to go where they can learn, grow, and build lifelong friendships. That's why as the largest provider of child care in Northeast Ohio, our work is our passion.

We offer before and after school care, early education and child care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and a summer day camp your child won't forget! Our quality programs are just the start. Armed with countless community partners, skilled staff, and decades of success, care at the Y is not just another program- it is an experience! We are confidence builders and people connectors. We help teach life skills, and inspire children to learn and try new things. We believe that kids should laugh, play, learn, and get outside!

We are so proud of what we have to offer, and hope to see you join us at one of our sites!
