About Our Programs



(Offered exclusively at the North Canton Child Development Center)
As a part of our Infant and Toddler program, your little one will be surrounded by a caring staff who is here to support him/her during this important period of development. Our infants enjoy a flexible schedule that meets each child’s needs. Toddlers share meal and rest times and begin to practice group learning experiences.



(Offered exclusively at the North Canton Child Development Center)
The Y preschool is a great beginning for a lifetime of learning! With a curriculum rooted in the Early Learning and Development standards, there is nothing "cookie cutter" about what we do! Children ages 3-5 can participate in preschool programs that prepare them for kindergarten and beyond!



With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, Y before and after school programs serve kindergartners through sixth graders (some locations up to eighth grade) with a variety of programming options to explore and develop their interests and talents.



When school is out, the Y is IN! The YMCA offers "School Days Out" Days for children Grades K-6 (up to 8th grade depending on location) on days when school is not in session. The theme-based day of fun and adventure incorporates a variety of activities: arts and crafts, games, singing, and even free play. Dates and times are in line vary by location based on local school district calendars. 



We offer a weekly summer program for children entering grades K-8 (age groups vary by location) The children participate in a setting which allows for: exploration, crafts, singing, games, swimming, and just plain FUN! In addition to swimming and weekly field trips, We offer a variety of Specialty Camp experiences, such as: Cooking, Karate, STEM, Art, and more!
