Afterschool Childcare

YMCA Afterschool Childcare is designed to help kids in every community succeed developmentally and academically. At the Y, kids are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to improved achievement in the classroom, positive behaviors, and social skills.

The Y provides a safe and fun place for kids to go, so that parents can work or study. Children have options to explore and develop their interests and talents. Our flexible schedule allows each child to choose what they want to do. We offer quiet spaces and support for students to work on their homework Monday through Thursday afternoons.

Students in Afterschool Childcare will engage in the following activities:
Academic/Homework Support
Exploration and Play (sports, games, physical activity)
Creative Arts
STEM Learning
Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
