Before & After School Child Care

At the Y, we believe that values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. Our child care programs implement five key youth development practices; promote a sense of safety, encourage relationship building, foster meaningful youth participation, provide opportunities for community involvement and create challenges and engage learning experiences that help youth build skills.

Our staff is highly trained to carry through these five key principles in our programs offering a rich environment so children can explore and develop their interests and talents. We invest in the health and wellbeing of each child by providing healthy snacks and promoting physical activity. We support HEPA standards (Healthy Eating Physical Activity) by offering enrichment experiences for youth to gain knowledge/understanding of healthy food choices, so they experience a healthy mind and body.
