Mount Hope YMCA Child Care Center
421 Hope Street, Providence


The Mount Hope YMCA Child Care Center, a part of the East Side/Mt. Hope YMCA, is dedicated to supporting strong, healthy families in our community.  Our child care program provide full-time learning and care to children age six weeks to pre-kindergarten.   The Center is located across from the East Side YMCA on Hope Street.

The Child Care Center is Bright Stars accredited, and maintains the highest standards for child safety, child development and continuing staff development. We employ a nurse on site. All our lead teachers and teacher’s assistants are full time and hold an associate or bachelor’s degree; or are enrolled in an accredited program pursuing a college degree.

The Center is housed in a renovated former school, and preserves the old charm and character of the lovely building with big rooms and high windows which provide a spacious, bright, learning environment for all children.

If you are looking for either a child care opportunity for your preschooler, infant and/or toddler, we encourage you to check out the Mount Hope YMCA Child Care Center.

The Center is led by Program Administrator, Terri Longworth and Linda Limoges, Education Coordinator.  Both have been in Early Childhood Education for over 20 years and together, bring a wealth of knowledge and professionalism to the center with expertise in DCYF licensing, Bright Stars, Environmental Rating Scales (ECCERS) and RIELDS.  

Terri and Linda look forward to meeting Mount Hope families, and to working with them to create an engaging learning environment for children, families and staff.
