Before & After School Care

The SWC YMCA Kids’ Clubhouse programs allow students to participate in academic and extracurricular enrichment activities and to develop new hobbies and skills. Our staff of teachers provide a variety of unique programming options to students. Participation in high-quality afterschool programming has been proven to improve school attendance, academic achievement, graduation rates, and attitudes toward learning. Students attend two and a half hours of before and after school programs each day will gain the equivalent of nearly two months of learning time.
