The YMCA Before and After School Program is a non-profit, parent-funded child care service. The program is designed to serve the needs of parents who work or attend school by providing safe, quality care for their elementary-age children.


Our programs are designed to offer each child many opportunities for intellectual, physical and social development. Children take part in a wide variety of activities for group and individual play including crafts, music, art, sports, cooking, storytelling and dramatics. Our facilities are cheerful, well equipped rooms that take full advantage of the school setting by offering play in gyms and on playgrounds, use of books and films from the libraries, special guests and field trips. Although we offer a quality program that includes planned activities to complement the school experience, our highest goal is a warm, caring atmosphere for the children.


Locations: Averill, Cavanaugh, Cumberland, Fairview, Kendon, Lewton and Wexford.
