Our Y provides after school programs so kids can be active, learn new skills and build friendships while developing character through play.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit serves neighborhoods throughout Southeastern Michigan communities in partnership with local academies and Public School Districts by offering affordable school age child care programs to families.

Y school age child care delivers a safe, secure, inclusive environment with staff committed to nurturing the potential of each child in our program.
