With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn fundamental skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. When you entrust your child to the Y, we strive to fulfill our promise to make each day an opportunity for your child to learn, grow, and thrive. Caring for your child and providing them with a safe environment remains our #1 priority.

Please note: An active Summit Area YMCA Membership is required to register for any childcare or summer camp programs. If you do not have a family membership, a Youth Membership (Ages 12 & Under) may be purchased for each child billed annually at $105 per year/per child. If you had a membership previously and are having trouble reactivating it, please complete the Membership Change Request form.
As a nonprofit, the Summit Area YMCA is committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families in our community. We do so by offering financial assistance to those with demonstrated need so that they may enjoy all the Y has to offer, regardless of their ability to pay. This helps us ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Families with low or moderate household income or those who are experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to apply. Applicants must live or work in the Summit Area YMCA service area which includes Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Financial assistance can be used for membership, childcare, summer camp, enrichment, sports programs and more where additional fees apply, such as soccer and swimming lessons.
