Quality childcare conveniently located at your school. 

As part of the Y's Before & After School Childcare (SAC) staff members plan each day with new and exciting activities which develop spirit, mind, and body. Our goal is for each child to feel successful about his/her accomplishments.  An after school "super snack" is provided through Nourish, a youth nutrition collaborative.

Is a YMCA Membership required?

Nope. But, you will need an online account set up with the Y (this is free!) in order to log in, register, and pay for programs online.

You might be wondering if you already have an account with us or if one needs to be created... We've put together a How To Guide to help you figure that out.
