Child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It's about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and building self-reliance.
Magic Place After-School Care
The YMCA Magic Place is a fun, safe and supportive afterschool program serving Roanoke City, Salem City and Botetourt County public schools.
Middle school students think Y Pass is fun, and parents know the Y offers a safe place to socialize, get homework help and stay active and healthy.
With your household membership, you can receive up to two hours of free childcare for your children ages 6-weeks to 12 years. Our trained staff keeps kids engaged in active play, art projects, reading and other activities. We put safety first with a sign-in-and-out procedure practiced at all times. Parents must remain in the Y facility while their child is in our care.
Ages: 6 weeks - 10 years
Parents can drop off their kids at the Y and enjoy an evening to themselves. Children ages 4 years and up will enjoy activities such as arts and crafts, swimming, gym games and more. Also, we provide a meal and snack to ages 4 years and up.
