Child Care Center

The Stevens Point Area YMCA Early Education Center provides a safe, nurturing environment where your child will learn, grown and thrive. Our program is designed to encourage children to develop a love of learning. We offer high-quality care for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. Through the use of guided self-discovery and experiential learning, teachers focus on providing children with enriching experiences to facilitate social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth and development at the most critical time of a child's development, which is from 0 to 5 years old.

The hours of operation are 6:30 AM - 5:30 PM, Monday-Friday.

4-Year Old Kindergarten

Getting ready for kindergarten! Our state-licensed 4-year-old kindergarten program, free to children in the Stevens Point Area School District, focuses on positive socialization skills and preparing for success in kindergarten. Our 4K readiness program offers age-appropriate activities that help children develop academically, grow socially, master skills, make friends and become comfortable in a classroom setting. All the traditional preschool necessities are covered, with a focus on building strong character and preparation for kindergarten.


Preschool (2.5 - 4 years old)

The YMCA takes its role of providing a comprehensive developmental preschool program serious. We strongly believe that preschool should be family-centered to the greatest extent possible. Each class level provides social and educational experiences for children to gain confidence in the world around them and enhance their self-esteem.
