Growing with Guidance

The Akron Area YMCA cares for over 2,000 infants, toddlers and preschoolers in seven Early Care and Education Centers.

Designed to give the working parent peace of mind, all-day early childhood care is provided to children, ranging in age six weeks to five years. All centers have state-certified staff and provide structured programming throughout the day, giving children the attention, guidance and care they need, as well as the opportunities to learn, play and interact with one another.
