School Age Programs - Morning and Afternoon Options
At the Y, we believe your child should have a safe, fun, and nurturing environment to come to every day. It is our goal to stimulate your child's mind through various activities that will help develop their creativity, self-esteem and instill character development values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The YMCA Child Care Center at Lewis Street offers before and after school care for kids in grades K-5. Trained staff will supervise children in activities including arts & crafts, structured play, homework, and snack time. We also offer fun clubs during days off from school as an extension to our School Age Child Care Program.
