At the Y, we believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

In our before and afterschool programs, youth cultivate values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better overall wellness and education achievement. Child Care Services is the largest childcare provider in Allen County, serving locations in Fort Wayne Community Schools, East Allen County Schools, Most Precious Blood School and St. Jude Catholic School.

Our before and afterschool programs are open to children ages 5 to 12 years, where they can participate in activities that focus on the whole child - spirit, mind, and body. Hours of program operations are 6:30 a.m. til school starts and school dismissal til 6 p.m.
