EXERCISE, LEARN & PLAY AFTER THE SCHOOL DAY
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.
This year it is extremely important that you enroll your child(ren) early in our programs! Your enrollment will help us to decide which schools we will be able serve this year. To register, please complete a separate form at the link below for each child you are enrolling in the program. A representative from our child care team will follow up with you after you complete the registration form.
The registration link above is only for schools with 5-day in person learning. Click here to learn more about our program for hybrid or virtual students.
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.

In a normal year, we serve 28 schools in the school districts listed below, however as we all know, this year is very different from normal. To be transparent, our reality is that will not be able to be at all of the schools we normally are, however we will do our best to serve every family that needs care.
- Edgewood City Schools
- Franklin City Schools
- Parochial Schools (St. Pete’s, Sacred Heart, St. Joe’s, St. Ann)
- Ross Schools
The decisions as to which schools we will be able to serve will be based on enrollment, which is why it is imperative that if you plan on enrolling in our program, you do so as soon as possible. A representative from our child care team will follow up with you after you complete the registration form. You will need to complete a separate form for each child in the program.
We will not be providing Before and After School Care at the school locations for the districts that have chosen to be on Hybrid Schedules. For those students, we will provide Before & After School Care at the same location as the Full Day Care and parents are responisible for setting up transportation to/from the schools.
