You’ve Got Childcare Options with the YMCA

Sponsored by the YMCA of South Hampton Roads

Quincy got to visit the YMCA of South Hampton Roads Youth Center in Suffolk! 


He has the opportunity to speak to Janelle Dawson, who is the Regional Youth Development Director! She tells Quincy that the YMCA has a ton of different developmental programs for kids. 


Janelle’s favorite is the YMCA’s Summer Camp. In Suffolk specifically they have “Camp Arrowhead,” “Camp Red Feather,” “Camp Silver Beach” and “Camp Grom.” 


The YMCA also offers both before and after school care! They offer YMCA based before and after school care, and school-based before and after school care as well. 


For members who want to take a class or get a workout in during the day- the Y offers drop-in care for 2 hours out of every day. 


Being able to have your child in a safe space, where they learn alongside other kids! 


The YMCA is a licensed childcare program, so the childcare staff requirements are stringent! The staff go through a lot of training, have their CPR and first aid certifications, and are also able to do daily health observations to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all kids and staff. 


Quincy is challenged to several different activities with the kids! Watch the full video to see who wins!
