Before And After School Care

ACHIEVE. BELONG. CONNECT.

The Y makes the most of your child’s after school time by offering active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds. Housed in local schools, YMCA After School Care gives your child the opportunity to engage in active play and collaborate on fun projects. It supports academic achievement, fosters health and wellness, instills positive social emotional learning and creates opportunities for youth and families to belong and connect. We are committed to keeping our participants and staff safe and healthy and have implemented enhanced safety procedures to follow during this time.

A Typical Day at the Y After School Program

Y Community Time

Welcome children into the program;
this can consist of a formal greeting, icebreakers, or group games. Students receive a healthy snack that includes a whole grain, fruit, and water. NEW: During this time, staff will be trained to use evidenced-based social-emotional learning (SEL) activities to promote diversity, inclusion, empathy, compassion and critical thinking.

Brain Power Hour

Dedicated time for students to work on daily homework and participate in self-guided academic learning centers. Students will be allowed to use any technology device needed to assist with homework, with parent’s permission. YMCA will hire campus certified teacher to assist with homework assistance for students who need support.

Exploration

Activities will be focused on STEM and literacy but incorporate various subjects throughout the year.
