In the effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and in accordance with local requirements, all YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles child care sites are currently closed or operating at limited capacity. As your school district adapts its plans for the upcoming school year, you may be wondering how you will navigate the new school day structure while meeting the demands of work and home. At the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles, we are currently working in partnership with school districts and school administrators to see how we can best help and support youth and families, this fall.
This summer, we are providing child care in a safe, caring and responsible way. We have served hundreds of children in our summer camps, taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of the children, their families and our staff. As part of an international movement, the YMCA has developed systems to keep kids safe, as evidenced in this NPR article.
For more information on a specific child care site or to join our email interest list for the fall, please contact childcare@ymcaLA.org.
Our before-school and after-school programs offer working parents a safe haven for their children outside regular school hours. We provide a staff-to-child ratio of 1:14 and year-round care by instructors who specialize in education and child development.
Our thoughtful curriculum includes homework time, fun enrichment classes and the chance to work with community organizations. Your child’s safety is our priority, so we also require a majority of our childcare staff to be certified in CPR, first aid and water safety. Every member of our team undergoes a thorough background check prior to employment.
As we recognize the importance of quality care for kids, financial assistance is available to qualifying families.
Our child care program offers support and peace-of-mind.
