About the program


The YMCA is committed to supporting and nurturing kids in Central Ohio communities. During the school year, when schools close for parent/teacher conference days, single day holidays and longer holiday breaks, the YMCA offers full-day child care from 7am - 6pm at select branches so that kids have a place to play and learn (note: pre-registration may be necessary).

We offer School Days Off at the Hilliard, Vaughn E. Hairston, Hilltop-Cherry Creek, North, and Liberty/Powell YMCAs. Children receive a nutritious morning and afternoon snack and participate in a variety of activities, including arts and crafts, swimming, large and small group games, gym and outside activities and much more. 

Now that you know your child will be having fun in a safe, wellness-oriented environment, you can both look forward to days off of school!
