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.
