Begin and end each day with the YMCA!
Kindergarten (ages 4 & 5) and School Age (ages 6 – 12) programs are designed to not only support children’s developmental needs, but also promote independence and strong leadership skills. Our holistic curricula (YMCA Playing to Learn and YMCA A Place to Connect) ensures that kids spend their mornings and afternoons building positive relationships with peers, enjoying nutritious snacks, and engaging in fun indoor and outdoor activities geared toward their unique interests.
Feel confident that your child’s time outside of school is just as constructive and creative as when they’re in the classroom by inquiring about Before and After School Care program spaces at your local Y.
