After School

Where Kids Excel After the Bell

At YMCA After School, kids expand their learning beyond the classroom. We use a balanced curriculum with opportunities for character development, STEM activities, arts and humanities, community service and physical activity. YMCA After School is a structured program with time for kids to start homework, engage in active fun and enjoy a snack with friends.

The YMCA’s After School Program Curriculum offers a variety of age-appropriate activities that balance opportunities for active play, learning and making friends. Our curriculum focuses on these areas:

  • Homework Time 
  • Sports and Active Games
  • Arts and Humanities
  • Swimming
  • Relationship and Achievement Building activities
  • Reading
  • Character Development
  • Enrichment Activities

The YMCA’s After School starts at school dismissal and ends at 6 p.m. There is no After School on scheduled days off or snow days. 

Each day we focus on a different subject and we will provide small lessons based off the curriculum the kids are learning at school:
Mondays – Math
Tuesdays – Science
Wednesdays – History
Thursdays – Writing
Fridays – Theme Day
