School Programs

The YMCA of the Triangle is proud to be the area's leading provider of quality child care programs. We provide safe, affordable programs for school-age children to keep them active, engaged and learning. 

This fall, we are offering YMCA Scholastic Support Centers, a safe place for your K - 8 students to go and participate in their remote school programs. 

Our YMCA Before and After School programs will open when in-person school starts. We are currently working with principals and administrators across school systems we serve to secure schools and sites. If you don't see your school listed, please fill out this brief interest form.


Scholastic Support Centers

With the start of the new school year, we know that you have questions about how you will be able to work while supporting your student's online school education.

The YMCA of the Triangle has been working diligently, and in collaboration with local school systems, to develop supplemental learning programs that align with educational requirements while also supporting out-of-school time and child care needs of students. 

Scholastic Support Center Kindergarten Hubs

Scholastic Support Center Kindergarten Hubs are a place where your Kindergarten student can go to participate in their remote learning or Virtual Academy classes with additional support from our YMCA staff. Smaller student-to-staff ratios, 1:5, give your student more on-on-one time and academic enrichment activities to bolster their transition from Preschool to online Kindergarten learning.

After School Programs

The YMCA offers quality After School programs for students in grades K - 8 in Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Johnston and Lee counties. YMCA After School is held from school dismissal until 6 p.m., and early release days are included.

We provide after school programs at many area schools. Currently, the YMCA is offering After School programs at schools that have returned to face-to-face instruction.

Before School Programs

Before School is the YMCA's early morning child care program serving children in grades K - 5 in Wake County.

Programs begin at 7 a.m. and are held at Wake County schools or area YMCAs. Transportation to the school is provided by the YMCA as needed. 

YMCA Before School is a fun, well-supervised start to your child's day. 


The YMCA is hosting a Homeschool program, beginning in January 2021.

As the number of Homeschool families in our community grows, the YMCA is excited to partner with these families through providing resources like branch facility access and more than a dozen classrooms.
