Care for all kids

A national shortage of certified lifeguards and swimming instructors have prompted us to make some slight modifications to our pool schedule and swimming lesson program at all Y locations. Please check your local Y location for the most up-to-date schedules. Swimming lessons have been postponed; please check with your Y location beginning Oct. 1 for an updated schedule.

The YMCA of Greater Erie provides childcare throughout Erie County.

YMCA membership is not required to participate in any of our childcare and educational programs for kids.
