School-Age Care

As a parent, you know the hours before and after-school are critical for a child’s development. Before and Afterschool Care provides you peace of mind, where your child can continue learning in a safe and supportive environment. The Y offers homework support, healthy snacks, physical activity, STEM activities, and much more. Your child will have opportunities to try new things and make great friends.
Our enrichment programs provide a space for transformative learning experiences in a caring setting during critical after-school hours. Staff are carefully screened using standards set by the State of California, which includes extensive training and ongoing education. We also understand the role YMCA staff play in exposing youth to positive role models who build their self-esteem and sense of community. Located on school campuses, we provide age-appropriate and active learning environments using the SCALED LEARNING™ curriculum.

School's Out Care

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. 


Youth Programs

Through the Y’s activities for kids, we develop the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement. Classes teach the fundamentals of program areas in a supportive environment. Programs at the Y encourage personal expression and the freedom to create and provides new experiences for kids. Our programs run in several-week sessions throughout the year. Each Y location offers unique programs to fit that community's needs.
