Developing Youth

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

Healthy Living

Promoting positive choices around health and well-being

Strong Community

Supporting our neighbors and community

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.



As a state-licensed infant care, preschool and pre-kindergarten for children ages 2 months to 6 years, the Children’s Station provides a supportive and nurturing place for children to learn, grow, have fun and gain skills to succeed in primary school. Serving 90 children daily, the center also offers parents resources to learn about child development, education and nutrition. A full-time onsite cook ensures children eat well balanced, nutritious meals. Learn more about our Childcare Food Program here.

Located in what used to be the Union Pacific Railroad Station, The Children’s Station is a place where your 2-month-old baby can be hand-fed and have their diaper changed by their primary caregiver, or where your 5-year-old preschooler can prepare for Kindergarten.

The YMCA Children’s Station provides a safe, quality place to care for your most precious assets.
