Superior Douglas County Family YMCA


General Information

YMCAs are the nation’s largest provider of childcare. We provide high-quality programs that are family-centered and values-based to nurture children’s healthy development. We provide a safe place for children to learn foundational skills, develop healthy trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Here are the childcare and preschool programs we offer:

Shooting Stars

A Preschool Experience for 3-5-year-olds.

Shooting Stars integrates the YMCA facilities with a traditional preschool experience. Children will have an opportunity to develop an increased ability to think, reason, question, and experiment. They learn how to follow directions and make choices in an environment filled with language and enrichment opportunities.

4K Program

The YMCA in conjunction with the Superior School District provides a site for 4-year-old kindergarten. This program is free of charge for children in the Superior School District. Your child will learn through hands-on experiences, age-appropriate activities, and freedom of movement. We foster a child’s independence and individual learning styles. Two days of swimming are included.

Wrap Around Care

Does your child need care before or after Shooting Stars or 4K? Children will enjoy extended hours at the YMCA. Rest time, activities, free play, gym time, and much more await your child’s day. You will have the peace of mind knowing your child is in a safe and nurturing place while you are busy.

Before & After School Program

The Y and School District of Superior have partnered to offer a quality program before & after the school day at each elementary school site. The Y provides before school care. The School District provides after-school care. The program includes homework help, free play, and gym time.

The Superior YMCA kids need your help!

The child care playground is in need of several improvements. We are raising money to purchase a shed, sandbox, sun tarps to provide shade, tower swing set, playhouse with accessories and new toys. Donations can be given at the member services desk.

Through your support, we are able to improve our YMCA child care playground to be enjoyed by many children for years to come!

Thank you! Together we can make a difference!
