Out of School Learning

There’s a good feeling that comes with knowing your child is safe and thriving at the very same place they attend school. No finding a bus. No commute. No worries. What’s more, learning is a part of everything we do. Children are taught The Y’s four core values – caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, - to help them become future leaders of our community. We will offer, at no extra cost, enrichment activities including STEM projects (thanks in large part to generous support from ArcelorMittal), Health & Fitness Activities, Sports Clinics, Homework help, Literacy activities, and Arts & Crafts. To meet children’s personal growth needs the staff’s role is to facilitate an environment that is not over directed but empowering, which will foster children’s independence by encouraging them to make friends, try out new experiences, and think of new ideas. On top of all of that children have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence! We take pride in our programs and invite you to learn more about our School Age Program.

marshmallowSTEM Learning (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)

Y-Care plays a critical role in helping to keep kids healthy and active. STEM learning during our Out of School Learning after school program helps students become problem-solvers and gives them the ability to frame problems as puzzles they can solve. STEM learning creates innovators who are instilled with the power to pursue independent and original investigation and it encourages them to become collaborators and to flourish in group settings. Students participate in STEM activities three times each week. Y-Care's STEM program is made possible in part through generous support from ArcelorMittal.
