Quality Care. Quality Connections.
For many parents, their workday is longer than their child’s school day, but we’ve got you covered in our YMCA Before & After School Programs at J.S. Buchanan. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your child has dependable, quality care each day of the week outside of regular school hours. Our programs not only provide excellent care, but an opportunity for your child to socialize with their peers, build friendships and participate in fun-filled activities facilitated by qualified YMCA Registered Early Childhood Educators. Full-time, part-time and flexible schedules can be are available. Hours and availability vary by school.

Andrea's Y Story
“The Y Child Care has been such a great place for Harrison and Graydon .Finding a place for both our toddler and school age child that could accommodate their needs was challenging. Our sons learn and explore and we have seen them grow so much. They have formed great relationships with other children and the Y educators and are always excited to go every day. As a parent I feel comfortable knowing they will be cared for in a safe, clean and educational environment where they have fun! The Y staff go above and beyond and we truly appreciate it.”
