Before & After School Program

Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y, where they can make friends and learn the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity and educational success.

We are proud to support our community by offering Before and After School program options for families.
