The Portage Township YMCA Child Care and Development Center exists to provide working families with access to quality, affordable curriculum-based child care and development. Children are actively engaged in age appropriate care that builds developmental assets, increases cognitive skills, provides social stimulation and encourages individual growth in a values-oriented environment. 

At the Portage Township YMCA Child Care and Development Center, you will find that our commitment to quality shows in everything we do. We know that selecting a center for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make because the early years are critical to your child's long-term development. As a parent, you want the highest quality care in a setting where your child's social, physical, emotional and intellectual development will be nurtured. The right program will make an important contribution to how your child learns, grows, plays and explores the world. We know that we can never replace the special time spent between a parent and a child. We will do what we can to reinforce and enhance that special relationship. We think of ourselves as your partner in providing a positive influence and environment through our child care program, which will encourage your child to grow to his or her fullest potential.
