Cape Ann YMCA Before &  After School Childcare

Cape Ann YMCA Before & After School Childcare

The Before and After School Program is a fun, educational program that helps elementary school children develop self-confidence, friendships, positive values, academic achievement, while building a sense of community. We offer care during school vacations, snow days, and half days. Each child registered for the school-age program also receives a Free YMCA Youth Membership. Licensed by the State of Massachusetts, Department of Early Education and Care.  

Before school care (available only at Rockport Elementary School) begins at 7:30 am
After school care is from dismissal until 6:00 pm
