Here at the daycare center at the Clearfield YMCA we believe in a fitness-based approach to Child Care that sets us apart from many facilities in the area. Our Children will learn, read and exercise while they are in our care. They will swim in our pool, play in our gymnasiums, and take walks downtown to lower and upper Witmer Park playground in the fresh air when weather permits.  This approach ensures our children not only have fun while they are here, but that they will have a better chance at staying active as they grow!

Did You Know…

Our facility is open to the public. You don’t need to be a member for your child to attend Child Care, although there is a discount for being members of the Y.

We are right downtown! Our location makes it easy for us to take the children for walks to Witmer Park and to Shaw Public Library.

We’ve been trusted in the community for over 35 years.  The odds are pretty good that you know someone who attended our program.

We have a Before and After School program. You can enroll your children from age 6 weeks through 12 years of age.

The school bus stops right in front of our building.

We offer fresh, home-cooked meals that are included in the care.

We provide a secure, friendly environment with easy check-in and check-out
