Open Houses at the Boulder Y

During the month of March, Y staff will be hosting open houses at the new Boulder YMCA Inspire Early Childhood Care and Preschool. Take a tour of our new childcare space, see the classrooms, meet our caregivers and teachers and learn more about our curriculum, philosophies, policies and daily schedules. Visit our events page to see open house dates and times.

Infant Care

Come visit our brand-new YMCA Inspire Infant & Toddler Care space at the Y in the heart of the city of Boulder. This new program — licensed by the state of Colorado — will support families with little ones ages 6 weeks to 3 years old beginning April 1, 2024. 

YMCA Inspire Infant & Toddler Care at the Boulder Y will focus on providing individualized care that helps babies and toddlers meet developmental milestones. Our highly trained teachers ensure little ones are growing and learning: from feeding to tummy time to taking their first steps, our teachers will be there to nurture their growth and help them stay on track. Each infant and toddler will have the support of an individualized care plan, which will allow our staff to follow your little one’s sleep, bottle and activity schedule. Singing, reading books, playing and enjoying quiet time, our caregivers will work to develop bonds with your littles one, inspiring trust and nurturing comfort. 

While our new infant and toddler care space is located within the Boulder Y, it is accessible only to childcare staff and families registered in the program. 

The Y accepts CCAP and offers financial assistance to those who qualify.

There is an annual non-refundable registration fee per child; $100 for preschool and $200 for infant/toddler care. Our registration system will not allow you to enroll until you’ve paid this fee. The registration fee is a requirement for all UPK enrollment and is the parent’s responsibility. The registration fee is good for the school year. Registration fees are waived for all families using authorized CCAP.

Registration is based on continuous enrollment. Registering on a month-to-month basis does not guarantee your child a spot in preschool.
