About our Afterschool Childcare

School-Age Childcare 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 Y offers North Carolina star-rated, licensed programs designed for ages 5-12 that are based on the Y's four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our caring youth mentors lead activities that will boost your child’s confidence, enrich his or her social and physical development, and encourage self-expression.

The program includes arts and crafts, sports, cooking, adventure, teambuilding, anti-bullying programs, obesity prevention, "Play for Your School" sports leagues, swimming (swim lessons available), group exercise classes, homework assistance (tutoring available), group games, outside play and more. We serve Asheville City and Buncombe County schools.

Each week includes environmental exploration, field trips, theme days, and activities.
