All Child Care

The greatest compliment our YMCA families can give us is referring a friend to one of our outstanding YMCA child care centers.  We are proud to share our new Refer a Friend Program which entitles you to a $50.00 credit on your child care account.  Each time you recommend a friend to a YMCA Child Care location, as a result of your recommendation to other families, a $50.00 credit will be applied to your account.  The credit will be received after the new enrollee has attended child care for 60 consecutive business days.  Call 610-378-4775 or your child’s center for more information!
