School Age Child Care

When you need convenient and affordable before and after-school care or remote learning options, this program is for you.

The YMCA’s Before and After School Care Program serves children from kindergarten to age 12 within a number of public, private, parochial, and charter schools in Dayton and the Greater Miami Valley area. Our program nurtures the spirit, mind, and body, giving children the ability to develop and reach their full potential.

The YMCA places a heavy emphasis on the social and emotional development of children. Our core values are Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. 

*Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our locations have changed based on schools opting to participate in remote learning. Our school age program availability aligns with the school districts of your local YMCA's. 

As with all of our YMCA youth care and enrichment opportunities, this program is specifically designed to meet the developmental characteristics and needs of the youth we serve. Program directors are mindful that children have different developmental needs during school years and activities are geared accordingly, from help with homework to simply “blowing off steam.” The YMCA is a trusted partner with a proven track record.
