Learning, Growing, and Thriving at the Y

Our qualified educators use sensory experiences, hands on learning, and individualized learning goals to provide the best educational experiences for your child. They help guide whole class interactive learning activities that promote critical thinking, self-regulation, and problem-solving skills. Our classroom learning centers provide age-appropriate materials and educational activities designed to reinforce skills and concepts. Our teachers promote independent and child-lead learning, while offering support to the children during activities throughout the day. Our infant, toddler, and preschool playgrounds offer an abundance of both structured and free play outdoor physical activity during all seasons!

Childcare Billing Questions and Contact Info

Monthly payments for Y’s Time can be made by automatic draft, cash, online, or by mailing check to Billing Capital District YMCA 465 New Karner Road Albany, NY 12205. Please print your child’s name in the memo section of your check. Because the Capital District YMCA processes checks as electronic funds transfers, the check will appear as a debit on your statement, and you will not receive a cancelled check.

As a reminder, in an effort to go green we will not mail a bill each month. All payments are due by the 1st of each month. Payments received after the 8th will receive a $25 late fee. If your payment is not received by the 15th, your child will be removed from the program.
