YMCA Before & After School Enrichment programs foster each child’s cognitive, social-emotional and physical development through opportunities and experiences which focus on achievement, relationships and belonging. The planning of each activity is offered in a physically and emotionally safe environment consistent with evidence-based principles of youth development: each child is encouraged to develop at his or her own unique rate by encouraging skill development and frequent leadership opportunities. Families are seen as partners in their child’s development and are provided opportunities to strengthen the family unit and give the family and the YMCA the opportunity to work, play, learn and thrive together.

We are making decisions as to which locations will open based on enrollment numbers, so if you need child care, be sure to register as soon as possible by clicking the link below and filling out the registration form. We will then follow up with you by phone to confirm and finalize registration and answer any other questions you may have.



Here at the YMCA, your child’s safety is our top priority. We cared for the children of healthcare workers for 10 weeks. That’s 50 days of frequent, vigilant cleaning and sanitizing efforts, keeping children safe and well cared for. We will put this essential experience into play as we re-launch our Before and After School Enrichment program with enhanced cleaning protocols and safety standards.

We’ll be following all of the state’s mandated recommendations, if you would like to learn more, you can read up on them here
