YMCA Before and After-School programming is designed to help kids in our community succeed developmentally and academically. We focus on a well-rounded curriculum with 9 components that are 21st Century Skills, Arts & STEAM Activities, Global Exploration, Health & Wellness (BOKS - Building Our Kids’ Success), Leadership Development, Service Learning, Family & Parent Engagement, Guest Speakers and SEL - Social Emotional Learning.
Our staff are concerned about each child and strive to provide safe and fun experiences for all. We encourage children to participate, develop ideas, and most of all, have fun! Our staff are certified in CPR/First Aid, child abuse prevention and reporting, and emergency action plans. All staff have criminal background checks, child abuse clearances, and fingerprinting clearances. Our trained staff are experienced in working with children and look forward to playing a key role in your child’s educational program.
The non-refundable, non-transferable registration fee must be paid to hold your space.
Reserve a spot with a non-refundable deposit, and submit necessary forms for 3rd party payments or financial assistance.
To guarantee attendance on the first day of school, you must register at least two weeks prior to that date. Registration is first come, first served and space is limited. To comply with state licensing regulations, additional enrollment forms are required.
Please note that children will not be able to attend child care programs until written or verbal confirmation is received from the YMCA.
At the Y, we're committed to being a nonprofit that's FOR ALL.
We believe that whole communities thrive when people of all abilities come together. Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment to welcome children and adults with disabilities through inclusion and adaptive programs, services and resources.
