Before and After School Child Care



The YMCA before and after school programs provide an environment where children can easily make friends, be part of a group, meet physical challenges, and know that they are liked, respected and appreciated. Our program offers youth the opportunity to have fun while learning healthy living through 5210 and science, technology, engineering, and math through STEM reading and arts activities.

Program Dates:

The YMCA before and after school programs are available from the first day of school until the last day of school. Programs are provided on most school holidays, winter and spring break, and inclement weather days (check your school calendar for school closings). Additional fees apply.
