With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That’s why child care and early learning programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Before and Afterschool Child Care
Y school age child care delivers a safe, secure, inclusive environment with staff committed to nurturing the potential of each child in our program. The activities and atmosphere of the program are designed to meet the developmental, academic, physical, emotional, and social needs of the children served. Each YMCA Child Care Site Supervisor develops a specific schedule to meet the particular needs of the children at their site. The program includes all of the following*:
- Homework Help
- Healthy Snack Choices
- Reading Activities
- CATCH Physical Activity Program
- Recreational Time
- Theme-based Weekly Activities
- Arts and Crafts
*activities are subject to change.
Our Y serves neighborhoods in our community in partnership with local academies by offering affordable school-age child care to families. We provide care directly at the school, based on the school calendar.
