No child is ever turned away. At all YMCA child care programs, because we are state licensed, we can accept a third party subsidy (such as Purchase of Day Care and 4C) to pay for child care expenses. For those parents who do not qualify for these third party subsidies, but cannot afford the full price of child care, we offer financial assistance through the YMCA's Share the Care Program. How much financial assistance does the YMCA provide? This past year (2001), we financially assisted approximately 550 children each month in our school-age programs and approximately 98 children in our infant, toddler and preschool programs. Did you know? All of the YMCA of Greater Louisville's Child Care programs are currently (voluntarily) participating in the STARS for KIDS NOW child care center rating system, as part of the Governor's Initiative, and working on NAEYC and NSACCA Accreditation.
