YMCA Afterschool Care is open to children in kindergarten through fifth grade who need supervision until their parents can pick them up once school lets out. The program is designed to offer homework help; fun, exciting activities; snacks; and play time in an innovative, safe environment that promotes a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Afterschool care is held on-site at your school by Y staff, all of who are certified teachers in the Raleigh County School System. Our staff will carefully guide your child through each part of the days curriculum and will provide encouragement and coaching as needed.
