Y Club: A Before & After School Enrichment Program

We believe that childcare should provide opportunities and experiences that stimulate a child's physical, social, intellectual and emotional development.In the Before & Afterschool Enrichment Program, kids will engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they've learned in school, they participate in interactive learning models that engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with their homework from trained YMCA staff, have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence. This program is available Monday - Friday on regular and early release days.

Our goals are to provide quality care for all children; provide a safe, structured, and free choice environment; support and strengthen the family unit; and help children develop to their fullest potential.

Before & Afterschool programming focuses on eight core content areas:

  1. Arts & Humanities
  2. Character Development
  3. Health & Wellness
  4. Homework Support
  5. Literacy
  6. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)
  7. Service Learning
  8. Social Competence & Conflict Resolution
