Before & After School Child Care
Our quality child care programs are held in area schools following the school calendar. The core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are modeled by our staff as they care for your child in a safe, state-licensed program. Each day we provide homework assistance, physical activity, group and individual games, arts and crafts and an after school healthy snack. A YMCA membership is required. A copy of our parent handbook is available below.
In order to successfully guarantee your child a spot in his/her program, all of the following forms must be present and completed on the day of registration. Each of these forms is also available at the YMCA Welcome Center in Westbrook, CT.
