Before School/After School

Building Strong, Bright Futures

The Garden City Family YMCA offers before school at the Y and afterschool at nine different sites.  For Beforeschool we transport your youth to their school at the designated time. Breakfast is offered to the kiddos that want it.  During our Afterschool program the kids can attend at their school (if offered) or are either dropped off by their school bus or can be picked up by the YMCA.  When they arrive at the the Y or their school site they will get a snack, have some time to do homework or enrichment and then participate in a physical activity.  The afterschool sites will be transported over once a week to swim in our family pool and play in the gym! Each day our Christian emphasis is shown with a daily devotion.
