Infant Care

CHILDREN GROW WITH US!
Selecting the right child care program is a big step for a parent to take. It can influence how well a child learns, studies and plays. It can also determine how he or she sees the world. It is exactly for these reasons that so many parents trust the YMCA to care for their children.

For more than 25 years, the Aberdeen Family Y has been providing services to our community though various child care related programs. Today, our child care facilities offer a wide range of programs for infants through pre-teens.

The Youth Development Center is open 52 weeks a year. This includes school release days and during the summer. We also provide transportation from area schools. If you plan to start sizing up child care programs in the near future, we ask you to remember one thing, our 25 year record of caring for children is tough to measure up to.

Call about openings (605) 225-7113. We welcome ages 4 weeks to 6 years old.
