April 24-28 is Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week! We are proud of our staff for being positive, caring role models that create safe, healthy environments for the children in our care.

This week is the perfect time to recognize, appreciate, and advocate for those who work with young people during out-of-school hours. The week is marked by celebrations and public relations efforts encouraging appreciation and support for all the afterschool professionals who make a profound difference in the lives of young people.

It’s all about finding meaningful ways to thank afterschool-time professionals for all that they do to enhance education, promote physical and emotional health, provide a safe environment, and expose youth to new experiences.

Afterschool Programs At The Y

At the YMCA we have been providing high-quality, affordable care to our local community for over 20 years. Our Y’s School Age Care program extends your child’s learning day in a fun and meaningful way! Our programs enable children to realize their potential in a place where fun & learning go hand in hand. With a focus on character development and healthy living, children experience academic, physical, and social activities, under the supervision of positive, caring role models. Parents enjoy peace of mind knowing their school-age children have safe, healthy options before and after school – right in their child’s school.

Our programs provide academic intervention, healthy activities, and enrichment opportunities throughout the school year, boosting their grades and reducing their risk-taking behaviors.
