Somers Point Schools

2020-2021 School Year

We appreciate your patience while we work to find the best plan on moving forward for the 2020-2021 school year.  At this time, we are speaking with our school district partners to prepare our School Age Child Care program for the upcoming school year.  As we have information to share we will do so immediately through our website, emails, and our social media.

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.

Program Information

Before Care: 7:00 am until the start of school
After Care: 12:45 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!
