Program Information:

The Y School Age programs offer peace of mind to working parents by providing programs on-site at your child's school. Our caring staff provide homework assistance, lead sports, games and arts & crafts, and organize special events - keeping your child safe and happy until they are taken to school or picked up.

The Y School Age programs provide opportunities and experiences that stimulate a child's physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development. The scheduling, pacing and rhythm of each activity is consistent with recognized principles of childhood development - each child develops at his or her own unique rate within general needs of his or her age group.
