Child Care

The Richmond YMCA offers three types of child care.

YCare – After School Care

The YCare program provides a safe, caring, fun and educational atmosphere. Children are assisted in developing self-esteem, learning cooperative skills and are asked to practice the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our program is aligned with the school day and supports students’ learning. We focus on addressing the needs of individual students by offering tutoring support and reinforce learning that takes place in the classroom in new and exciting ways.

Please register your child at the Richmond Family YMCA. The downloadable paperwork will help get you started

YWatch – Child Watch

When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and adults. At YWatch, children play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff. At the same time, their parents are able to relax, connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y.

YWatch is available free of charge to children whose parents are family members of the Y. Parents may leave their children at YWatch for a maximum of two hours per day and must be in the Richmond Family YMCA facility while their children are in our care.

Summer Camp

The YMCA Summer Day Camp offers a safe and caring place for children to engage physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It’s a place for children to make friends, swim, play, explore, build core values, participate in fun learning activities, and by the end of summer, be a more well-rounded and responsible individual. Camp intentionally nurtures each child’s individual characteristics by promoting a spirit of independence and exploration, while keeping children physically and mentally engaged.
