Primetime After School Care HCY
YMCA afterschool programs foster each child’s cognitive, social-emotional and physical development through opportunities and experiences which focus on achievement, relationships and belonging.
The planning of each activity is offered in a physically and emotionally safe environment consistent with evidence-based principles of youth development: each child is encouraged to develop at his or her own unique rate by encouraging skill development and frequent leadership opportunities.
Families are seen as partners in their child’s development and are provided opportunities to strengthen the family unit and give the family and the YMCA the opportunity to work, play, learn and thrive together.
Finally, the YMCA collaborates with other organizations that are committed to serving the needs of all children and families. It’s through these collaborations and a strong youth development focus and assessment that the Y delivers consistent quality programs.
