Early Childhood Education Centers

For those times when you can’t be there yourself, the Y provides a safe, nurturing environment where your child will learn, grow and thrive. Our Early Childhood Centers are licensed by the State of Missouri or Illinois and all child care staff members receive extensive training through the national YMCA as well through the Gateway Region YMCA.

The Gateway Region YMCA has six locations throughout the area, including the Edward Jones Family YMCA (located in Maryland Heights), the Mid-County Family YMCA (Minier Center in Brentwood), Monsanto Family YMCA (near Page and Union), the St. Charles Family YMCA, the Tri-City YMCA (in Granite City) and the West County Family YMCA. 

The Y is an advocate for children and our voice is heard on the national, state and local level. The Gateway Region YMCA is involved with the National School-Age Child Care Alliance, National Association for the Education of Young Children, Missouri School-Age Child Care Community, the St. Louis Youth Provider Network, Child Day Care Association, St. Louis Partnership and United Way.
