AFTERSCHOOL CARE

Programs and Ages:

School-Age Child Care at the YMCA builds self-esteem, values and leadership skills. You’ll know your children are growing and exploring their potential; they’ll think they’re just having fun.  The YMCA offers North Carolina 4 & 5 star-rated, licensed programs designed for ages 5-12 that is based on the four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We offer developmentally-appropriate activities that will enhance your child’s confidence, enrich his or her social and physical development and encourage self-expression. Our program includes arts and crafts, sports, cooking, adventure, teambuilding, anti-bullying programs, obesity prevention, swimming (swim lessons available), Group X classes including Yoga, homework assistance (tutoring available), group games, outside play and more

The best part of our programs are the children we serve each day.  Click HERE to visit our photo gallery.
