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!
