School-Age Childcare

 We know firsthand how difficult it can be to find balance in life. That’s why we’re here with you every day, making sure that you, your family and your community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow and thrive. Before and after school child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids…It is about providing a safe, nurturing environment for children to develop social skills, healthy trusting relationships and self-reliance. Through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, your child will develop the necessary well rounded skills for better health and educational achievement.

Nurturing the Potential of Every Child

The Y believes the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, kids have the opportunity to make friends, have fun, get active and discover who they are and what they can achieve. Because of the Y, youth in our community are passionately engaging in learning and the critical thinking required to make smarter life choices. Confident kids today means contributing and engaged adults tomorrow!
