School Age Care

Kids do better when they have access to multiple opportunities and resources. At the Y, we use our integrated approach to youth development to ensure children and families have everything they need to succeed. 

We believe that each child is special, with his or her own unique personality, talents, and skills. We use a developmentally-appropriate approach geared towards each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. Our goal is to build upon each child’s unique abilities, helping him or her to blossom into the young person (s)he was intended to become.

    • Before Care - $11+ per day
    • After Care - $22+ per day
