Where Care Meets Achievement

The YMCA offers programs to help your child succeed in the classroom. Whether you're a new parent looking to learn how to best prepare your young one for school, or looking for a fun, enriching place for your older child to spend time after school until you get off work, the YMCA has programs aimed at helping giving them the best chance at a bright future. Our Discovery Preschool introduces children into the fun world of learning.  The Ottawa Y runs a Before and After School Program at The Ottawa YMCA and at Wallace Grade School in Ottawa. The Y also offers a Summer Day Camp Program at the YMCA location only. 

Scholarships for YMCA After School Program are available thanks to the LaSalle County United Way and the Ottawa YMCA Annual Campaign
