Child Care

Welcome to the Tillamook County Family Youth Development Programs! All of our  Youth Development Programs are geared to help your child grow into strong, confident, and caring young people. Caring, well-trained staff have been providing care for children in our community since 1948. We offer care for children and youth in Preschool through sixth grade. Children must be 5 years of age and potty-trained in order to enter our  childcare programs. Swimming, play, team building, field trips, and healthy snacks are all a part of your child’s experience here at the YMCA.  For any questions about Child Care, contact Smokey, our Youth Development Director.
