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. At the end of the school day, Riverwood Middle After School students will walk over to Riverwood Elementary with a YMCA counselor. The program is held at the elementary school.
After School is held Monday - Friday from school dismissal until 6 p.m. (Care is not offered on Wednesdays, due to the school calendar.)
$10, per day (YMCA Member)

Scholastic Support Centers
Our Scholastic Support Centers offer daily programs where your K – 8 students can go to participate in their online school or Virtual Academy classes.
YMCA counselors are energetic and enjoy working with children. We train our counselors to be leaders and positive role models. Most are high school and college-aged students.
Health and Safety
After School will be available by the day. Parents can register for the days of care they need and the weeks of care they need. You must register by Sunday to start the program the following Monday.
The YMCA requires a $5 deposit per week, per program. The balance is due on the first of the month. For example, all November care payments are due on November 1. The YMCA will draft your account or charge your credit card on this day.
