Child Care

The Odessa Family Y provides excellent Infant, Toddler, All-Day, Pre-School, and After School programs during the school year and full time care for school-age children during the summer and holidays. Pick-up from all area schools is available. Activities are designed to be age appropriate in a center based curriculum format. The Odessa Family Y Childcare Centers are participants in the TSR (Texas School Ready) curriculum, a school readiness program formally known as the TEEMS program. All centers have newly remodeled learning center based curriculum rooms with new hands-on learning activities. What makes the Odessa Family Y child care unique is that we are not only getting our children ready for school, but also providing them with Bible studies provided by Mission Odessa, physical fitness programs, swimming, and numerous educational and fun field trips. This well-rounded program is enriching and promotes a healthy mind, body, and soul for each child.
