Y's Kids Out of School & After School Programs

We have created an opportunity to provide all daycare for your elementary age child(ren) ages 5-12.  As per the communication we have received from local and state officials, licensed programs are approved to operate within our existing guidelines in order to assist working families.  

Out of School Program - This program was offered when schools went to virtual school
We are planning on helping your child through this educational gap.  Activities will include reading, math, and science in an effort to help keep them educationally engaged while you work.  We will be finding creative ways to help your child learn while still having fun.  

  • Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack will be provided on days that children are not in school
  • A snack will be provided when children arrive after school. 

Traditional Y's Kids After School Program - Currently being offered

Please understand our program availability is subject to change if the regulations for licensed childcare centers change at any point.  As you know, recommendations are changing on a daily (if not more recent).   Our staff is working very hard this week to do deep cleaning and sanitizing to help provide a clean environment.
