​​​​​​Ararat Children's Services

A child’s first years of life set the foundation stone for their lifetime. It is a time to shape their development and build assets that will see a child become a positive, healthy young person who can grasp every opportunity presented. The YMCA understands how important it is for each child to be given these essential building blocks in life so they can reach their full potential

The YMCA is a recognised provider of quality Child Care services. In Australia more than 400 YMCAs offer some type of children’s services programming. Contact us for a full list of programs available to your family.
