QUALITY BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CHILD CARE
LEARNING AND FUN AFTER THE BELL
At the Y, we believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. It makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Our Before & After School programs keep school age students engaged in learning and fun activities outside of the classroom. We offer programming after school at our Ys and local schools. Some Ys also offer before school care with transportation.
We know that having quality, dependable care is important for working families. Care is also available during school vacation weeks, early release days, snow days and other school breaks.
All of our programs are licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Early Education and Care.
Our programs offers:
- Daily homework time
- Gross and fine motor activities
- Enrichment activities like swimming, yoga and sports
- Arts and crafts
