Before & After School Care

Before & After School Care may be impacted by social distancing and public health mandates. Please contact your local branch and visit the Health Resource Page for up-to-date information.

As a parent, you know that the hours before, and after school are critical times for a child’s development. Before and after school care at the Y provides you peace of mind, knowing your children are safe and in an environment where the learning taking place at home and school, will continue. The Y partners with families to offer homework support, healthy snacks, physical activity such as games and sports, as well as arts, science and plenty of opportunities to try new things and make great friends.

Get Started


The YMCA Before & Afterschool Program balances the needs of youth, families and local schools in a fully licensed, supportive and nurturing environment. We believe that children should have meaningful experiences and activities that complement and expand their school experience. We also understand the role that YMCA staff play in exposing youth to positive role models who build their self-esteem and sense of community. 
Core Components: 
•    Homework Support 
•    Healthy Eating & Physical Activity 
•    Sports & Recreation 
•    Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
•    Character Education
•    Youth Leadership




YMCA programs operate year-round and when school is out to ensure children have academic enrichment and recreational opportunities when they need them most. School’s Out Care is available on most school holidays including winter and spring break. During the summer Before & Afterschool Programs transition to Day Camps and are accredited by the American Camping Association.
