Child Care / Afterschool

Even though safety is one of our top priorities, a quality afterschool program is more than just a safe place for students to hangout after the bell rings.

The YMCA Afterschool program provides youth with a safe place to go during out of school time. Activities promote positive social interactions, indoor and outdoor play and reinforces academic and social learning concepts with designated time to focus on homework and remote learning tasks. Our trained staff are quick to adapt and cater to the needs of the children in our program during this stressful time.

Our Afterschool Program operations are contingent upon federal, state, local and CDC guidelines and will follow School District #2 guidelines on school openings. All Afterschool and full day care programs are subject to change.

COVID- 19 PRECAUTIONS:

  • Daily temperature checks
  • Social distancing throughout the entire program
  • Increased disinfecting and hand washing
  • Separate spaces for each group with the same staff each day
