Before and After School


Children need a safe place to play, learn and grow during out-of-school hours. YMCA School Age Child Care offers structured time for school-age children to complete homework, participate in enrichment activities, play group games and enjoy free time.

Before School

Children who arrive before school will receive a healthy breakfast and have time for relaxation and social engagement before the daily rigor of classes begin.

After School

Children who attend after school will receive a healthy snack and enjoy fun, hands-on activities that engage them in the joy of learning. Art, health and wellness, literacy, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) are all incorporated into programming in a way that is fun and interactive. 

Children will also enjoy at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day. This physical activity is important because it develops life-long habits to prevent obesity and chronic disease, it helps harness energy in a positive way -- and it’s FUN!

Additional enrichment activities may be offered based on interest at each location.
