WHAT YOUR KIDS DO BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL IS AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT THEY DO AT SCHOOL!
Children need a safe, nurturing place to go when their parents are at work. Time gaps before and after school can be empty and lonely for kids—and a challenge for busy parents.
Research shows that participation in quality before & after school programs is associated with a positive attitude towards school, better school attendance and higher aspirations for further study, better interpersonal skills, less time spent in unhealthy behaviors, and reduced drop-out rates.
Our Before & After School program will deliver programming that encourages children and youth to engage in activities that foster their personal and social development during these critical hours.
The Before & After School program will give the opportunity for children to grow while learning the 5 core values of the YMCA – Caring, Honesty, Respect, Trust and Inclusiveness. Time spent being physically active and learning healthy behaviors is more important now than ever before. In fact, this is the first generation of children and youth in modern history to inherit a lower life expectancy than their parents. In our programs, kids not only get the opportunity to be active, have fun and develop confidence through games (gross/fine motor), arts & crafts, and outdoor activities, but parents also get the peace of mind that their children are active and learning while spending time with their peers.
