Why Should You Work in Child Care?

The Harrisburg Area YMCA prides itself in providing a safe, sustaining environment for children to learn and thrive! We believe it is never too early to focus on the growth of the whole person. We strive to realize the uniqueness of each child. The Harrisburg Area YMCA offers Half Day Kindergarten, Preschool, School Age Child Care, and Full Day Care services for parents. Even more vital than these programs is the dedicated staff it takes to keep them running. According to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, young children thrive when they have secure, positive relationships with caring, knowledgeable adults.

Job opportunities in before and after school care at the Harrisburg Area YMCA are a great way to jumpstart your childhood development education! Positions are almost always open at one of our branches. Youth-oriented jobs are perfect for full-fledged college students ready to gain hands-on experience.

“I enjoy working at SACC because the hours give me the flexibility to finish my degree. I also enjoy watching the children learn and grow throughout the school year.” – Katie P, SACC employee
