Our YMCA Before and After School Care programs strive to create a community where all children have a sense of belonging and can foster positive connections. Through respectful and supportive relationships both within our program and the surrounding community, we celebrate the strengths, interests, and ongoing development of your child. Your child will be celebrated as a mighty learner and citizen while developing the pro-social and academic skills essential to their school-aged years.

Your child will spend their middle childhood years becoming confident decision-makers who can effect change in their communities as they interact with our Educators trained in our national curriculum, YMCA A Place to Connect. The skills that we foster will support them as they form new relationships, experience new communities, and flourish as changemakers and citizens throughout their lives.
