Mount Hope Child Care Center:
Your Neighborhood Child Care Center

The East Side/Mt. Hope YMCA is dedicated to supporting strong, healthy families in our community. Our child care program, the Mount Hope Child Care Center, provides full-time child care to children ages six weeks to pre-kindergarten, as well as a part time babysitting program, Kids Care, for parents who just need a little time to work out at the Y. Our 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 Mount Hope Child Care Center is located across from the East Side YMCA on Hope Street, and preserves the old charm and character of the lovely building with big rooms and high windows providing a spacious, bright, learning environment for the children.

Tanya Gilbert has recently joined the Mount Hope Child Care as program administrator. Tanya has been with the YMCA for four years, and formerly owned and operated her own child care center for many years. Tanya holds an MBA from Johnson and Wales University, and previous to the Y, she was the director of operations at the King's Cathedral in Providence. She exemplifies the Y core values of respect, honesty, responsibility and caring, and brings much enthusiasm to the position.
