Flexible full-day care with virtual learning support

The Y's e-Learning Academy is a structured, safe and FUN full-day child care program where your child can spend the day in the absence of the classroom. We provide a setting designed to support virtual learning, lesson completion, and activities that foster social and emotional development. 

  • Pick your days: Choose the weeks and days that your child will need care.
  • Full day of care: Drop off begins as early as 6am at some locations, and care is provided through 6pm. Use the location finder for hours at your YMCA.
  • Virtual learning and academic support: The Y will tailor each program to the school district it serves, supplementing the school’s curriculum accordingly. WiFi will be available, and children will need to bring their own iPad/tablet/laptop and headphones to participate in virtual learning. YMCA academic coaches will work to ensure that children complete assignments on time.
  • Engaging activities: The Y will also provide fun YMCA child care and camp style activities to ensure that children are having fun while learning, exploring and discovering skills, talents and potential.
  • Safety: The Y has implemented safety measures for camp and child care programs and will follow those practices of daily screening before entry into the program, mask wearing, social distancing, personal hygiene and cleaning.
