About the Provider

Description: Programs lie at the very heart of how a YMCA achieves it's mission.  YMCAs are well known for the wide variety of program offerings they lay out before the community.  At the Kokomo Family YMCA, we are no different.  We present to our community a very rich variety of different options.  While it is very difficult to be "everything to everybody" --- we do hope to provide something in the way of our programs for the great majority of Kokomo , Howard County , and surrounding areas.

I would NOT recommend this child care facility to anyone. If any other daycare was available within my child's school district, I would have fired them ages ago. The staff is RUDE & unhelpful. They do not seem to care about how they treat people at all. They are unreliable. Every year we have to wait to see if they are going to continue after care for our children. Staff turn over & reliability is ridiculous at best. The 'teachers' on site are relatively 'okay', but the building staff is horrible. You have to watch how much they charge you each week as they will attempt not to give you credits due, but are quick to attempt to swindle money whenever they feel they can.
