After School Care Program

After School Care Program

What is the YMCA After School Care Program?

Y Afterschool is a safe place for children to play, learn and grow when out of school.

Qualified and caring staff focus on nurturing the development of each child. We provide a place to have fun, make new friends and become more active. Children create lasting memories as they engage in a variety of educational and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve.

Benefits of YMCA After School

  • More Physical Activity
    Our after school care program includes at least 30 minutes of outdoor or indoor physical activity and movement a day.
  • YMCA Afterschool Staff
    Our staff is carefully selected and receives over 30 hours of training, from child development to the importance of being a positive role model.
  • We Partner With Schools
    Our curriculum is customizable for each district or school. Administrators and parents partner with their Program Director to decide which activities are most important to their scholar's goals.
  • We Listen To Our Parents
    We conduct two surveys per school year to assess parent satisfaction with our after school care program
