Before and After School Care

Your child will be involved in enrichment activities like homework time, crafts, indoor and outdoor games, snack time, sports programs and other creative activities that help them learn, grow and thrive. There is flexibility to accommodate various age groups and support all of our children enrolled. The YMCA maintains the highest standards of safety to ensure your child's well-being is in good hands at our childcare facilities.

The Y's before and after school child care programs are provided for children (preschool through eighth grade) during the hours when there may be no supervision in the home. The program is conducted by trained YMCA staff that serve as positive role models. Our staff will engage with your children in healthy activities that focus on the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

YMCA Before and After School Care
As the leading nonprofit for strengthening community, the Y is for youth development, nurturing confident, engaged kids today and healthy, contributing adults tomorrow.

We believe that every child should have the opportunities to pursue their dreams and reach their God-given potential. At the Y, children can discover who they are and what they can achieve through our before and after school care programs. Through enrichment activities that can engage and inspire minds to connections with friends and mentors that can mold and shape relationships, there is so much more than playtime going on at the Y!
The Y also expanded its longtime commitment to children and youth by adopting a set of Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Standards (HEPA). These standards build a healthier future for our nation's children by providing healthy environments rich in opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity. The Y is one of the nation's largest providers of childcare and afterschool programs. 

Thank you for choosing the YMCA of the Suncoast!
