The Y's History as a Leading Child Care Provider

The YMCA has provided Before & After School Child Care to Chillicothe and Ross County for decades, dating back to the 1970’s. Our programs provide youth with a safe place to go before and after the bell, during summers and on holiday breaks. More importantly, our programs help kids realize who they are and what they can achieve. The balanced program fosters health and wellness, supports academic achievement, and instills positive social-emotional skills through 10 key areas.

As the largest provider of Before & After School programs in Ohio and across the United States, YMCA’s bring a history of loyalty, trust and satisfaction to partner school districts. Currently, we partner with on-site programs at Huntington Elementary and Southeastern Elementary. We also offer the after-school program at the YMCA for students from Unioto, Chillicothe and Bishop Flaget. 

Through our collaboration with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, many students qualify for subsidized or free child care at the YMCA and at all YMCA program sites. In addition, we provide year-round services with our before & after school child care, school days out (e.g.,. holidays, snow days) and summer day camp programs.
