When routines seem to change daily, one thing remains the same: the Y provides a safe, enriching place for children to learn and grow, whether through out-of-school time offerings or through essential childcare for parents.

The Y’s early learning, childcare and out-of-school time offerings are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the support parents and families need and the importance of maintaining a safe, clean environment for children to learn and thrive. At the Y, infants develop trust and security, toddlers and preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and get help with their schoolwork.

The Greater Scranton YMCA is a leading childcare provider in the Greater Scranton region and is proud to offer full and partial day daycare and preschool childcare programs, a summer day camp, youth sports and enrichment programs and a before and after school program for school age children.
