Before & After School Care

Children and Teens

Your child's before- and after-school care at the YMCA of the Suncoast will have enrichment activities like homework time, crafts, games, 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 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.

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. 
 
The Y also adopted 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.

A DEAL FOR YOU!
Children enrolled in our School-Age Program have an All-Access Pass to the Y! Families are invited to upgrade to a full facility family association-wide membership at any time throughout the school year. Your family’s membership will be at a reduced rate if the child’s School-Age Program fees are paid by bank or credit/debit card draft EFT. Our one-time joining fee will be waived and you’ll get $10 off your monthly membership fee. Simply notify the Y’s staff of your child’s participation in this program. In addition, for current members, please notify the staff that your child is enrolled in this program so they can apply the $10 monthly reduction.
