Before and After School Care

Before and After School Care

What your kids do AFTER school is as important as what they do AT school!

At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our before and afterschool programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other. At the Y, your school-age child will make friends, learn new skills and receive assistance with their homework.
