Parents can expect a consistent structured environment that will include homework help, sports/games, snack, and arts and crafts. Moreover, the Y offers  affordable, flexible payment terms, that allows you to pay for only the days you attend! Scholarships are made available to those who qualify through our Strong Kids Program.
