Learning, Growing, and Thriving at the Y

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life. Because of the Y community, children are taking more interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children learn their ABC’s, learn to share, learn about sportsmanship, and most importantly, learn how to be themselves. That makes for confident children today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Attendance Policy

It is the policy of the Y that any absences be verified at the beginning of each program day. Parents are to be called by YMCA staff when a child is unexpectedly absent to ensure that parents are aware of the child’s whereabouts.  If you know in advance that your child will not attend program on any given day please contact your Childcare/Site Supervisor immediately.

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 or call 518.869.3500.
