Early Release

Another half day on the calendar? Let the YMCA ease your mind and tight schedule. When Easton and/or Avon Public Schools schedule an early dismissal, the YMCA opens its after-school doors early. At dismissal, the children stay in the comfort of their school for a long afternoon of friends and fun!  Space is limited, so contact the YMCA to reserve your child's spot.  This program is for children already enrolled in a YMCA childcare program.
