Center Information

The Greater Austin YMCA has been providing Afterschool Care and Summer Day Camp for more than 50 years. With programmatic oversight now being managed through our new Extend-A-Care YMCA branch, the Y now offers Early Education (ages 6 weeks – 4 years) and an added 20 years of providing innovative, high-quality programming for Austin-area families. Without a traditional facility, the Extend-A-Care Branch may be the Austin Y’s best kept secret. But the work is some of the most important that we do.

For questions about enrolling in EAC YMCA childcare programs, specific inquiries about your child’s childcare program, or questions about your EZChildTrack account, please call our office at 512-236-9622 (between the hours of 9am to 5pm) or email EACY@AustinYMCA.org.

Questions regarding other YMCA facilities (gyms, pools, fitness classes, swim lessons, youth sports, etc.) should be directed to your nearest YMCA location.
