We are COMMITTED to youth development.

Looking for childcare or afterschool programs? Or maybe STEM or Tae Kwon Do activities for your kids? From early childhood care to leadership programs for teens, we have programs for every stage of development.

At the YMCA of Greensboro, we offer a variety of opportunities and programs for our community to find a safe environment and enhance social connections.

We offer fun and engaging preschool, afterschool, summer camp and teen programs, ensuring there is something for every stage of your kids’ journey. These programs are offered in Greensboro, Jamestown, Eden and Reidsville, NC. Check more details and ALL the Youth Programs we offer down below!


Afterschool Care

The Y has worked in the childcare and afterschool space for years, and our holistic approach helps children improve their study habits and reading skills, build healthy eating and physical activity habits, and gain exposure to the arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), global learning and more.



Bright Beginnings

At the Y, we believe that every child should start the school year ready to excel. Unfortunately, there is youth in our community who start school without the supplies they need - whether that be clothes, book bags, notebooks or anything else. Bright Beginnings aims to change that. With your support, we can help each child be positioned for success.




When you come to work out at the Y, consider bringing your children along for the fun that awaits them at PlayZone or Energy Factory, the Y's child care program. Children can participate in age-appropriate activities in a safe environment—free for members.



Homeschool Programs

The YMCA of Greensboro's Homeschool Programs connect communities and give everyone the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.




Hayes-Taylor Memorial YMCA welcomes the opportunity to be “Partners with Parents” in the nurturing and development of each child.  Our 5 Star licensed child care programs provide a safe, fun and educational environment for all children to flourish. Our knowledgeable counselors teach the core character development traits of the YMCA: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.



STEM Activities

We offer fun and engaging science, technology, engineering and math activities like LEGO® Robotics, Chess Club and more!
