2023-2024 School Year - Register today!

Our Before and After School Care program is designed to provide care for children while parents/caregivers are working.  We emphasize the Y’s four core values in character development – caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility – in every activity and interaction. 

Our goals for the program are to provide:

  • A warm, caring and safe environment
  • Each child the opportunity to develop their self-confidence and social skills
  • Developmentally appropriate activities that stimulate creativity and encourage learning through fun and discovery.

Since the 2016-17 school year, our program at the Buena Regional School District provides Before and After School programming at three schools in the Buena School District: Cleary Elementary, Collings Lake Elementary, and Milanesi Elementary.

  • 2, 3, 4 & 5 Day Childcare Options 
  • Hourly Care Cards
  • Early Dismissal option (for program participants)
  • Sibling Discount - Save $20 on each additional child registered 
  • Remind App - Private Two-Way Communication with Childcare Staff 
  • Daily Calendar - Stay up to date with your child's activities in our program 
  • Tasty Tuesdays & Fresh Fruit Fridays
  • Check out the new income qualifications for State Childcare Subsidies
