The upcoming school year will look and feel different, but one thing remains constant, the YMCA of Central Kentucky will continue to be focused on serving our community, especially when it comes to nurturing the potential of every child. 

We recognize the importance of quality, safe child care when traditional school is not in session, and the Y will be here with options that match the new academic calendar. 


Our plans at this time for out of school time support for the fall, include:

  • Full-day licensed care from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.;
  • Open to school-age children, ages 5-12 (must be 5-years-old on or before August 1, 2020);
  • Cost will be $40 per day and paid in advance, bi-weekly;
  • Program will offer enrichment opportunities, educational support, social emotional learning and physical activity.


Current list of confirmed sites are below. The YMCA will evaluate the need for additional locations as needs arise.
