Led by qualified, caring staff, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee’s licensed Before and After School Education program is designed to be fun and educational, and align with the school day, supporting growth in literacy, math, and science. Your child will receive help with their homework, participate in games and activities and grow their creativity through a variety of projects. A healthy snack is also provided.

The Before and After School program serves school-age children, ages 4-12, in more than 30 locations throughout the metro Milwaukee area. Many programs take place in schools, providing an ideal situation for parent pickup and school day transitions.

The Y’s Before and After School Age Education program is tax-deductible and financial aid is available.

We also provide a half-day 4k Wrap Around program for students enrolled in 4-year-old kindergarten, and a School’s Out Program that provides care on half days, vacation days and snow days.

The African proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ speaks volumes to what the Y has done for me and my family. From my daughter’s development and education, to potty training and manners; the Y has been a partner in helping me raise a healthy and intelligent child. I appreciate and love my YMCA family.
