Our Ys are open with temporarily reduced hours to members and program participants. Guests are now welcome. Please check our reopening guide for policies before you arrive.



At the Y, we believe knowledge, skills and values learned early in life create a foundation for the future. We also believe in the power of fun and games, creativity and curiosity, friends and role models. That’s why YMCA Before & After School Care for K-5th grade sets out to give kids both smile-inspiring escapades and foundational experiences that help them grow as individuals. Whether it’s getting homework help, exploring science concepts, enjoying outdoor playtime or creating group art projects, the Y provides a safe, supportive environment that focuses on learning, developing interests and making friends.

Activities include sports and active games, homework time, arts and crafts, science and building, healthy lifestyle, team building, leadership for 4th and 5th graders and clubs.

Full-time and part-time options available. Sign up for before school, after school or before and after school care. Late Start Days also available. We must have a minimum of 5 students enrolled to run before school care.
