The Helena Family YMCA staff includes a couple of certified teachers, awesome tutors, and they are all ready to help! Pick a day, or pick a week, and financial aid is available!
We have been working to create a pricing structure that helps us cover our cost and still provide full-day child care for school-age children, which will still include meals and tutoring with high-quality staff. Please see the rates below, which will begin on January 4th, 2021:
For those kids enrolled in Distance Learning Child Care for a 3-Day Week:
  • $120/per 3 days week
  • $460/ month (3 day week, 12 days)
  • $65/day as a daily rate
  • $390/month for members with a Helena Family YMCA Family Membership
For those few kids enrolled in Distance Learning Child Care for a 5-Day Week:
  • $210/week
  • $800/month
  • $725/month for members with a Helena Family YMCA Family Membership
    A limited number of scholarships will be available through the YMCA’s Financial Assistance program. If federal funding becomes available, and we can increase the number of available scholarships, we will let you know immediately. We are continuing to look for additional funding sources to keep this program affordable, so stay tuned for updates. If you are a city or county employee, or their affiliates, our agreement for discounted services is still in place.
Days/Times: Monday-Friday 7:30 am -5:30 pm
Ages: K-8th grade
