Northwoods Elementary After School

8850 Chapel Hill Rd., Cary, NC 27513


YMCA After School programs prepare children to be problem solvers by providing them with the skills needed to manage their emotions and show empathy toward others. Each day, we offer a variety of activities that allow your children to build new skills and healthy habits. Our curriculum supports learning through active play and a focus on character development.

We offer quiet spaces 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.

YMCA After School is held from school dismissal until 6 p.m. 

Pick up is at the gym entrance in the bus lane at the back of the school. When you arrive please stay in your car and call 919-353-7931 and a staff member will come out and assist you.
