Youth Development

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Through developmental programs, your child is always safe!

Afterschool Program

Our after school program highlights a structured, safe environment offering homework assistance and peer-led tutoring. We offer affordable rates for working families and financial assistance is available. Cost of the Y Afterschool Program is based on $10/per child per day only for the days that your child attends the program, so every month is a different cost. When you register online (or at the Y front desk) you can see the calculated monthly costs. Daily drop-ins are welcome too. Drop in rate is $12/day per child.
