Black Hawk’s After School Care Program: Kidstop


Our Philosophy

YMCA child care programs stress care and safety. They nurture children’s natural desire to learn by providing ample opportunities to explore. This is accomplished through developmentally appropriate activities. The scheduling, pacing and rhythm of these activities will be consistent with the recognized principles of early childhood education, which state that each child develops at his or her own rate.

We believe that the child care center should be an extension of the home and should in no way attempt to be a substitute for, or in competition with the home. The cooperative experience will set the stage between the child’s education and interest and the family involvement.

Fees noted are for 2022-23 school year for Y members. Non-member rates are also available.
