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. 


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. 

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, or the YMCA transports students from their school to a nearby YMCA. 

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 this fall.

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. 

Learning Labs

YMCA Learning Labs are online sessions for homework help. Each YMCA Learning Lab session is 50 minutes long and will focus on existing school assignments, such as math, social studies or ELA. The learning sessions are staffed by YMCA professional youth directors who have hands-on experience with academic assistance through YMCA After and Before School programs, Track Out Camp or Y Learning. 

Preschool Programs

YMCA of the Triangle Preschool emphasizes a hands-on learning curriculum, motor skill development and creativity. Our preschool is a half-day program offered two, three, four and five days a week, depending on age.

We strive to develop the whole child and to provide an environment for preschoolers to learn, gain self-confidence, make new friends and respect others.
