YMCA staff works closely with a child’s school to create the best academically-aligned program for the child. Activities may focus on improving reading levels, assisting with homework projects, and developing time management skills. Games and enrichment activities promote learning while having fun.
Children explore and develop creativity and self- expression through drama, dance and mixed media art activities.
Health & Wellness
The Out of School Time staff emphasizes the importance of a healthy spirit, mind, and body. Through the Y’s unique “Kids on the Move” program, the well-being of each student is woven into the daily curriculum. Children learn the benefits of good nutrition and healthy food choices while enjoying nourishing snacks. They also learn stress management techniques through engaging and fun activities and stay physically active.
