YMCA Childcare

The Oneonta Family YMCA is a diverse, cause-driven non-profit organization committed to strengthening our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our YMCA preschool programs encompass that mission through a comprehensive philosophy that meets the needs of the whole child. 

We believe that children learn best through play. With that in mind, our curriculum combines quality academic programming with joyful movement to keep kids moving and learning in a bright, cheerful, and enriching environment.  We are confident that your child will learn the skills they need to get off to a great start in school!
