Pinellas School Age Programs

YMCA's are dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable School Age programming. As the nation's largest provider of School Age programs, including Before and After School care, YMCAs provide family-centered, values-based programs to nurture children's healthy development.

Our well-trained staff provides safe, affordable, high-quality programs so you can have peace of mind while you work. School Age programming, like all YMCA programs, is open to all, with financial aid available. Staff members are partners with parents and other caregivers, working together to help kids grow up healthy, happy and strong.

The Summer Bridge program (June 17-July 24), through Pinellas County Schools is for eligible students who are currently in kindergarten through fourth grade. Children in the Elementary Summer Bridge Program will participate in engaging reading, math and science activities, which will help bridge their learning from one grade to the next.

The YMCA provides safe, affordable and quality programs for children K-5 grade during the hours when there may be no supervision in the home. Children have the ability to engage in activities, which will benefit them emotionally and physically.

All YMCA programs are licensed through Pinellas County License Board and are contracted with Coordinated Child Care to provide subsidized care.
Programs open at 6:30 am and close at 6:00 pm.

The YMCA offers center based activities, homework time and after school enrichment programs. All children have the option of participating in different activities such as games, team building and arts/crafts.

YMCA has an Open Door Policy; Charitable contributions to the YMCA enable us to provide financial assistance on a sliding scale. We promise that everyone who qualifies will receive assistance to the greatest extent possible based on the availability of funds. School age programs are offered on school out days, during all holiday breaks as well as Summer Camp!
