YMCAs are the nation’s largest provider of child care. We provide high-quality and affordable programs that are family-centered and values-based to nurture children’s healthy development. All of our programs are state licensed, and all staff meet or exceed licensing regulations for background checks, education and experience. Whether your child needs preschool or school-age care, we emphasize values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Like all Y programs, child care is open to all, with financial assistance available.

Full Day Child Care

At the YMCA, we are dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable child care for children. The YMCA of Frederick County is the county's largest provider of child care programs, providing family-centered, values-based programs to nurture children's healthy development.


Welcome to the YMCA of Frederick County's Preschool program. Preschool develops skills for classroom readiness: socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. Children develop a passion for learning and experience a true sense of achievement.

Before & After School Care

As the largest provider of school-age programs in Frederick County, we help hundreds of children every day reach their fullest potential in a welcoming, supportive environment. By incorporating the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all of our youth services programming, we give children the solid foundation they need to thrive—not only in school, but beyond.

Green Valley Child Care
