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 Y Afterschool Program nurtures potential, improves academic engagement and achievement, builds confidence and character, and supports healthy development in spirit, mind and body. The Y provides a safe, fun and active atmosphere with a focus on our Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

Children participate in weekly activities such as:

  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
  • Homework help
  • Leadership development activities
  • Arts & humanities projects
  • Healthy snack
  • Rock climbing
  • Swim lessons
