The Bedford Area Family YMCA is committed to providing a safe, fun, and creative child care experience for school-aged children that will foster every child’s growth in the areas of self-worth, responsibility, self-expression, independence, and leadership. We have been providing quality child care for the families of Bedford County and surrounding counties for 25 years. We believe that hidden in the soul of a child, one can find some of the true treasures of life – generosity, sympathy, and kindness. Our PURPOSE in providing child care is to assist families in raising children into productive citizens through the growth and development of each individual. We achieve this by providing a safe environment that encourages children with nurturing, caring adults, to be who they are, yet challenging enough with quality curriculum, recreation and stimulation, to risk who they are for who they can become

All registrations include attending Fun Days ($10) and Extra Days ($30). Fun Days and Extra Days are specific days when school is out and/or snow/weather days available at the YMCA for any child registered in the ASP program running from 7am to 6pm (weather permitting). Please call 540.586.3483 to check on snow/weather days that we are able to open, if we are not then there will be no Fun Day that day. If your child plans on attending a known Fun/Extra Day please let us know with as much notice as possible. On these days, children should bring breakfast and lunch, 2 snacks, sneakers, a swimsuit and towel, refillable water bottles, and smiles. Fun Days are $10 additional for the day as they have been worked into the overall cost of the program, Extra Days are days that have not been included in the overall prices for the school year such as Winter and Spring Break, and therefore are $30 per day. For children who register (must complete full registration/registration fees apply) for ONLY fun days, all days are $30. Please see below for a full list of offered days and prices.
