childcareThe YMCA Early Learning Center (ELC) On Broadway is pleased to offer full time care for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years.  Our newest YMCA childcare site is located at 1403 East Broadway Street in Helena.  At the ELC your child will spend his or her days in a nurturing, positive, child-centered environment with a focus on developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for all ages including Kindergarten readiness.  You can expect your child to participate in activities that will encourage his or her social and emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.  The ELC has partnered with the Child and Adult Care Food Program to help meet your child’s nutritional needs by providing a healthy breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack each day.


The Early Learning Center on Broadway will be open from 6:30 am until 6 pm week days.  The ELC will be closed on Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Years Day.
