1/2 Day Childcare for Pre-K Students & After School Care for K – 1st Graders
Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Multi-child & military discounts are also available.
THE Y IS DEVOTED to children and youth of all ages and it is our mission to provide them with every opportunity to be happy and confident. Our Y Childcare Program incorporates our core values, Creative Curriculum and Conscious Discipline to ensure your child’s growth socially, intellectually and physically.
The philosophy of our Y Childcare Program is children learn by doing! Children spend part of the day in group activities and part of the day involved in self-directed learning centers. Learning centers may include:
- Dramatic Play
Language learning is a key element in the classroom and takes place through the use of songs, stories, finger plays, and poems. A typical day for your child may include circle time, group activities, learning centers, music, quiet/rest time, and outside play. Your child will also receive a nutritious snack each day! Kindergarten and first graders attending after school will receive a nutritious snack, participate in outside play, learning centers, and STEM and art activities.
Most Convenient Hours
We understand and empathize with how busy your life can be! That is why we offer convenient hours that accommodate most parent/guardian schedules. We offer before and after school care for Pre-K students. We also provide after school care for Kindergarten and 1st Grade. We offer a snack and a rest time for Pre-K children and a snack for K and 1st Grade. We operate from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Our Eddington location is not open on snow days and during school vacations, but we do offer care at the Bangor Region YMCA for K and 1st graders through our School-Age Y Academy Before & After School Program. Pre-K students may sign up for our Preschool at the Y Program for these days, depending on availability.
Our Partnership with Parents/Guardians
We believe the most important people in a child’s life are his/her parents or guardians. That is why we want to work with you and what is best for your child. We have an Open Door/Open Communication policy to ensure that each child is being given exactly what he/she needs to excel and feel confident, secure, and loved. We are a team that wants only the best for your child.
