2020-2021 School Year - Registration Open
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 2018-19 school year, our program at the Deerfield School District provides Before and After School for Pre-k through 8th Grade. Our program provides children and parents a safe, enriching, dependable, and affordable aftercare experience.
Before Care: 6:30 am until the start of school
After Care: 12:05 pm until 6:00 pm
From Arts to Nutrition to Homework Help to Leadership Development, our program offers a variety of activities to help your child grow. To read more about the Y's Before and After School program, visit the main page by clicking HERE!
