Your Child’s Full Potential Is Here
The Y works hand in hand with schools to extend learning, encourage active play,
and give kids the opportunity to discover what they love.
Thousands of children build skills and confidence as they explore new interests and passions through the Y. YMCA Before and After School Care offers kids the support they need to thrive from birth to graduation and beyond.
Access For All
The Y offers licensed before and after school programming at your local elementary school. Parents can build a schedule based on the days care is needed. Hours are flexible to meet the needs of working families with drop-off as early as 6am and pick-up as late as 6:30pm.
YMCA Before and After School Care is more than a place for children to go after school. It’s a place where caring adults keep children safe, introduce them to new friends, play group games, and help with their homework. We provide leadership development opportunities through our eights points of leadership and core values.
The Y employs youth development professionals in partnership with state staff licensing requirements. We are committed to delivering quality programs focused on safety, health, social growth, and academic support so children grow and thrive in our care.
"My child has access to healthy and yummy snacks, has quiet time to do homework, gets to play games with her peers, feels safe, and is in a well-controlled environment."
