The Y’s K-Kids program provides much-needed before and after school care for kindergarten students attending several area schools. Children participate in activities that emphasize fine motor skills through arts and crafts and gross motor skills through gym games.

The Y works with participating schools to provide transportation to and from school for students enrolled in the K-Kids program.

The Y’s K-Kids program offers a variety of options to meet the needs of busy families within our community. In addition to before and after school care, families can take advantage of extended care hours through the Y’s on-site Kid Zone programs at each participating elementary school.
