Kaimuki-Waialae Branch



It takes a village to raise a child.

Here at the Kaimuki-Waialae YMCA, we take that saying to heart.

This year, 21 million people—nearly half of them kids—will come to the Y to learn, grow and thrive. For the children who come to us, we offer

  • Preschool programs
  • Before & After School programs
  • A+ After School
  • Club Mid
  • No Limits
  • Intersession
  • Child Watch

As you read more about each program, you'll find that it's important to us that we always build a safe space in which children can feel free to learn, grow, connect and be themselves. They can be anything they want to be regardless, but we want to help them along by giving them the vital building blocks of values, social, and behavioral skills.

Our child care, after school and Child Watch programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, as well, as their need to feel supported as they try new things.

Let's work together to help children learn how to be their best selves. Join us at the Y!

The Y engages 10,000 communities across the U.S. and the YMCA of Honolulu is proud to be a part of this movement. The YMCA of Honolulu seeks to nurture the potential of every child and teen who comes through our doors. Whether you are the parent of a young child looking for pre-school care options, or are a young adult looking for a place to form friendships, the Y is here for you.
