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 potentialthey’ll think they’re just having fun. The YMCA offers North Carolina 4 & 5 star-rated, licensed programs designed for ages 5-12 that are based on the YMCA's four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
We offer activities that are purposefully designed to boost 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, group exercise classes, homework assistance, group games, outside play, and more.

We also offer a convenient and cost-saving year-round child care option that includes afterschool care AND summer camp. Please click here to learn more about the benefits of our year-round program.

Financial assistance is available based on need and available funds. The financial assistance application can be downloaded here. For details about afterschool, you can also download our Parent Handbook in English here. La Manual del Programa en español está aquí.
