Alexandria Area YMCA Child Care is pleased to offer drop-in and short-term child care to families Monday – Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. When plans change and you find yourself without child care, the Y is a great place for your children to explore, learn, and grow in an environment where they feel safe, cared for, and celebrated.

Drop-In Care

Drop-in care is available to families who need temporary, as-needed care. Care is subject to availability from week to week, and may differ by age group. These spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.


Short-Term Care

Short-term care may be utilized when consecutive child care is needed for small chunks of time. Care is available based on current enrollment numbers and may differ by age group.

A non-refundable deposit is required upon reserving a short-term spot. Contracted child care rates apply.


New families are required to submit all enrollment and payment forms 24-48 hours prior to the first day of care beginning. Please contact Jenny Johnson, Child Care Coordinator, at 320-834-9622 Ext. 201 or for more information.
