Before & After School Program

The Y’s Before and After School Programs engages kids in physically active, learning and imaginative activities that encouraged exploration of who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, they participate in interactive learning that help build healthy habits, active lifestyles and continued learning. Students get assistance with their homework from trained Y staff, form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development and growth and learn skills that can build self confidence. Plus we’ve got you covered on Early Release Days and School’s Out Days.  Learn more about our No School, No Problem Program.
