School Plus On-Site Afterschool Care

Safe & Supervised, Licensed Child Care

At the Y, we understand the difficulties working families face in raising children, so we are here to provide help with homework and a healthy snack so that time at home is truly family time.

When your child spends time with the Y after school, they are not returning to an empty house unsupervised. Plus, kids in our care develop confidence, character and other skills that set the stage for future success in life.
