Learning, Growing, and Thriving at the Y

We provide affordable and enriching programming for children before and after school. Each program is licensed by the Office of Children and Family Services and follows guidelines put forth by them. We strive to enhance each child’s education with theme-based activities which includes HEPASPARKand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), music, art, literacy, cultural experiences, and much more. In addition to our enrichments, the Y also offers homework and academic assistance, a nutritious snack, a variety of learning centers, the opportunity to socialize with friends and participate in sports and other gym activities. We strive to provide the children with opportunities that may not be available to them in other parts of their day.

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 Childcare 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. 

If you have any additional questions, contact the Childcare Billing Department at childcarebilling@cdymca.org or call 518.869.3500.
