Before and After Care

YMCA After School Care sets out to give kids both smile-inspiring escapades and foundational experiences that help them grow. Whether it’s exploring science concepts, enjoying outdoor playtime or creating art projects, the Y provides a safe, supportive environment that focuses on learning, developing interests and making friends. We’ve teamed up with Pop Culture Hero Coalition to offer a fun and innovative curriculum focused on STEAM, art, adventure and social and emotional learning. Participants also enjoy homework help, health and wellness activities, sports and games.

Here’s What Parents Have to Say About Y After-School Care:

“When you are busy and working, YMCA After School Programs are just really helpful. The staff are really amazing to work with and super flexible. I really think after-school care is one of the best things you can do (for your child). They just have so many great experiences here. It’s another layer of play and exposure to a lot of kids.”

— Donna, mom of after-school program participant
