WHAT IS THE YMCA AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM ALL ABOUT?
The YMCA's After School program provides children with a safe and fun environment full of new experiences and activities to keep everyone engaged, enriched, and inspired to try new things. Serving multiple communities, the Y’s program design provides children with opportunities to build self-esteem, learn life skills, receive homework assistance and gives children the chance to play both in structured activities and in supervised free play. Due to data-driven curriculum design, they will also increase physical activity, improve nutrition knowledge, reduce screen time, and build positive character values.
School age kids in the Raritan Valley Y childcare program will also benefit from the advantages of being at a YMCA facility dedicated to an active lifestyle. Our facility features provide opportunities for children to experience educational, physical, spiritual, and emotional growth to help them achieve their goals and dreams.
After School care runs from school dismissal until 6:00pm.
Children in the YMCA program participate in sports, fitness, games, cooking, dance, crafts, nature, science, reading and many more great age appropriate activities. Weekly activities are designed around each month's theme.
When school’s out we’ve got your back!
The YMCA offers Vacation Camp during the times when school is out. YMCA Members can pre-register for this program at least two business days prior to each specific program date for $75 per day rate. Spaces are limited, so please register early.
