The Before and After School Program provides child care for school-age children during the school year. The program runs from 6:30am until school starts and resumes at the close of school until 6:00pm.
Children are allowed to attend a breakfast program if one is offered at the child's school.

All YWCA child care staff members meet state requirements as providers in a group child care center.
