It's hard to believe that it's already time to figure out what your future kindergartner will do after school when they start in the fall! When you register your child for kindergarten, it's also the perfect time to sign up for after-school activities. Look no further than the Y for your before and after-school needs. 

Programs Right Where You Are

Parents love the convenience of Y Before and After School programs. Kids can head straight from class to us because our programs take place right at their school. It makes pick-up, drop-off and planning a cinch.

Learning Doesn't Stop When The Bell Rings

Kids make the most of after school time with active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds, including crafts, games, outdoor play and more. Committed and qualified staff that love working with kids encourage the use of the Y core values: respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.

Deepen Relationships

Y After School programs are unique for a lot of reasons, but one of the programs' best benefits is the extra time kids get to spend with classmates. They're building relationships that can follow them through their whole school career, plus kids get more structured play time to practice social skills that are important for their whole lives.

Y After School programs offer you the peace of mind that your child is in a learning and play environment led by skilled and caring adults, plus the location couldn't be more convenient.

For most programs, registration opens for the 2019-2020 school year in mid- January.
