With summer more than halfway over, it’s important to be thinking about where your child will go and what they’ll be doing at the end of the school day when school starts back.
The after school program at the Y is the choice of hundreds of families because of its convenience, programming, and trusted name.
Here’s a rundown of just a few of the benfits of after school at the Y:
Benefit 1 – We Pick Up From More Than 40 Schools
Because the Y has locations all over Greenville County, there’s sure to be a Y after school program site near you. Check to see if your school is on the list of pick up sites.
Benefit 2 – Kids and Parents Love It
From homework time to healthy snacks to active games, there’s a lot that both kids and parents like about the after school program.
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one of our Caine Halter Family Y parents had to say about the program:
It’s a wonderful program! My daughter absolutely loves attending the after care and there are so many fun filled activities for her, sometimes I can’t keep up! I appreciate that the staff are very aware of each child and that gives me relief and comfort. I can safely say I trust that my kid is in GREAT hands.”
Benefit 3 – It’s Affordable For All Families
After school at the Y is available to all families. Not only is it quality child care at a reasonable price, if your family’s budget is tight, the Y has financial assistance available for programs like after school. Find out more about financial assistance at the Y.
Benefit 4 – When School Is Out, The Y Is In
As an after school program participant, parents don’t have to juggle work and cancelled school. When school is out because of a teacher workday or weather event* the Y is open exclusively to after school program participants with School’s Out Special (SOS) childcare. Learn more about SOS days at the Y.
* In the case of school cancellations because of weather, look for updates from the Y on social media on whether childcare is open. The Y opens if the roads are safe for staff and families to travel to the Y.
Benefit 5 – It’s Healthy For Families
If you’re participating in after school at the Y, you should learn about all the other great things for your family to do at the Y. From fitness programs like group exercise classes to swim lessons and youth sports. There’s so much to do at the Y.
