Y Club Before and After School Program

Growing strong kids; meeting the needs of communities; strengthening families; and helping children to grow have always been central to the YMCA's mission and philosophy. Through YMCA child care programs, we do just that. Y Club school-age child care is for Kindergarten through 8th grade. Working with schools and parents, Y Club complements and enhances formal education and provides learning opportunities that build relationships, develop character and inspire discovery. Programs are licensed. Care may be provided before-school, after-school or both.​
