The YMCA of Central Kentucky’s Before & After School program provides youth with a safe place to go before and after the bell. More importantly, it helps youth realize who they are and what they can achieve. The balanced program supports academic achievement, fosters health and wellness and instills positive social-emotional skills through:

  • Literacy and Reading
  • STEAM activities
  • Nutritional Education
  • Physical Activity
  • Homework Assistance
  • Healthy Snacks
  • Character Development

Care is provided at schools or children are transported to the Y. We provide full week (3-5 days) and part week (1-2 days) services at our onsite locations. Only full week care is provided for schools transported by the Y.

And, don't forget about our Out of School Days program, when school's out, the Y is in! Join us during school holidays, snow days and in-service days for activities that are a sure way to keep kids having fun and learning along the way.
