At the Y, we understand the difficulties working families face in raising children, so we are here to provide help with homework and a healthy snack so that time at home is truly family time.
When your child spends time with the Y after school, they are not returning to an empty house unsupervised. Plus, kids in our care develop confidence, character and other skills that set the stage for future success in life.
Registration paperwork must be turned in at the Joplin Family YMCA. If you have never registered for a Joplin Family YMCA School-Age Service or if your child is age 6 or below, you will need to complete the entire Childcare Enrollment Packet attached with a copy of your child's immunization records (linked below). If you have filled out an enrollment packet in the past, we will just need a completed change form and a fresh copy of the Financial Agreement and Authorization for Autopayment (linked below as "School-Age Services Re-enrollment Packet"). If you have any questions about enrollment, please contact us at 417-781-9622!

We believe that we have something special at the Y and that everyone should have access to it. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and corporate sponsors, we are able to provide financial aid to those who might not otherwise be able to be a part of our Y family.
If you are in need of financial aid for membership or programs, please contact us. State Aid and tribal subsidies are also accepted for those who qualify.
