Before and After School Care

We know working parents have busy schedules, so we want you to relax knowing that your children are in a safe, supervised space where they can continue to focus on cognitive, physical and social development. Before and after school hours play an essential role in ensuring healthy development of our children – that’s why we reinforce what they learn in school through academic support and social interaction with activities like: homework time, reading, sports, games, arts and more. They’ll make friends, have fun and learn new skills that will carry them into their bright future.

“[The Y’s] school age aftercare program creates a community for the students – one of friendship, respect and independence. I have 2 children who participate in different programs at the Y, and across the board there is a culture of appreciation and respect for children. – Jennifer, YMCA Mom
