The Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Program provides a high quality, safe, convenient, recreational childcare environment for children regardless of ability.

 

The Y Club incorporates nine defined components as a way to intentionally foster holistic youth development through a range of activities focused on helping youth achieve, build relationships and feel like they belong, all while having fun! Open communication and collaboration with the school regarding your child’s behavior and individual needs will be ongoing.

  • State Licensed for ages 5 through 12 years
  • Conveniently located at your child’s school near you
  • Offered as early as 6:30 am; as late as 6 pm
  • Trained, caring, professional staff
  • Activities focused on fun, learning, and developing a positive self-image

Our Philosophy

  • To provide quality care for children, regardless of socio/economic background
  • To support and strengthen the family unit
  • To help children develop to their fullest potential
  • To deliver the program in a positive Y environment of safety, support and care.
  • To ensure and enforce a zero tolerance policy regarding Child Abuse and Neglect

Y afterschool programs foster each child's cognitive, social-emotional and physical development through opportunities and experiences which focus on achievement, relationships, and belonging.

The planning of each activity is offered in a physically and emotionally safe environment consistent with evidence-based principles of youth development: each child is encouraged to develop at his or her own unique rate by encouraging skill development and frequent leadership opportunities.

South County Y Club parents say:

"It is a great way to run off energy after the school day. My son has often told me not to pick him up early because he has so much fun there."

"As a household of two working parents, it has been a huge relief and comfort having a safe space for our child to be before and after school. It eases a burden and stress for us not having to drastically change our work hours and we know that he is getting a great, dynamic program.
