The Valley of the Sun YMCA offers child care through well-balanced programs that fit the needs of children according to their ages as well as their physical, educational and social growth.

Children are natural learners. Requirements for optimal growth are: a good self image, a stimulating environment, direct experience with objects and people, the opportunity to make changes and loving, caring, caregivers. The Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Family YMCA branch provides all of these things plus much more.

We have carefully designed every activity in our Preschool Program to expand every child’s imagination and encourage lifelong, positive values. We offer both half-day and full-day programs at the Y, which foster the development of your child as a whole and include activities that are well balanced with recreational, educational, character development and enrichment activities!
