At YMCA After School, kids expand their learning beyond the classroom. We use a balanced curriculum that supports learning through active play and a focus on character development and social emotional learning. We also offer a quiet space and support for students to work on their homework Monday through Thursday afternoons.
During the week, students will participate in a variety of enrichment activities with opportunities for skill development, physical activity and fun.
After School is held from school dismissal until 6 p.m.
YMCA After School at the Poole Family YMCA serves students attending North Garner Middle and East Garner Middle. Students are transported to the YMCA and pick up is held at the YMCA.
Cost & Registration
The YMCA offers two different ways to register for After School – by the year or by the week.
When you register by the year, you register one time and your monthly payments are even throughout the year. Yearly After School may be offered as 2, 3 or 5 days per week.
Parents may also register for After School by the week and then only register for the days and weeks they need care. Weekly After School is offered as 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week.
The YMCA charges a $10 late fee on Monday for that week’s registration.
