The Y's before and after school child care programs are provided for children (pre-k through eighth grade) during the hours when there may be no supervision in the home. The program is conducted by trained YMCA staff that serve as positive role models. Our staff will engage with your children in healthy activities that focus on the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. ***NEW FOR 2019/2020 SCHOOL YEAR*** ONLINE ENROLLMENT Save yourself time by enrolling online!
