OUT OF SCHOOL LEARNING

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 and is available in all 5 Duneland elementary schools. Our program nurtures the spirit, mind, and body, giving children the ability to develop and reach their full potential.

Out of School Learning will open in July. Check back for our registration packet!
COUNTDOWN TO REGISTRATION:
Led by qualified, caring staff, the Duneland Family YMCA's licensed Out of School Learning program is designed to be fun and educational, and align with the school day, supporting growth in literacy, math, and science. Your child will receive help with their homework, participate in games and activities and grow their creativity through a variety of projects. A healthy snack is also provided.

Out of School Learning provides developmentally appropriate activities that will enhance your child’s confidence, enrich his or her social and physical development, and encourage self-expression. Arts and crafts, games, homework time, snack, wellness components, nutrition, and outside time are some of the daily activities that will be available to your child.

These are the curriculum areas that our Y afterschool program staff will use as the framework for planning daily, weekly, and monthly activities:

  • Arts and humanities 
  • Character development 
  • Cultural diversity 
  • Health, wellness, and fitness 
  • Homework support 
  • Literacy 
  • Science and technology 

The Y provides a healthy afternoon snack during After School Care and healthy breakfast during Before School Care. 

If your child has any allergies or requires a special diet, please note it on your registration form and make sure your site director is aware of it.
