School Aged Child Care
The Y Ignites the spark in every child
The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA is offering programs to school-aged children throughout the community to keep youth active, busy and engaged during out-of-school time. Through a holistic approach to youth development, the Y’s programs offer activities in a caring and safe environment before school and during the critical hours after school. Whether through sports, mentorship, or academic support, the Y’s staff nurtures the potential of youth throughout the school year.
At the end of the day when the school bell rings, 11.3 million kids are headed home to be unsupervised from 3 to 6 pm, according to the Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness advocacy organization. The Y encourages parents/caregivers to make sure that children are involved in safe, educational experiences after school hours.
“Learning enrichment after school is essential to increasing children’s success in school,” said Dave Stevenson, CEO & President, Central Connecticut Coast YMCA. “The opportunity to get additional learning and support, as well as participate in meaningful activities can inspire children’s motivations and abilities to succeed.”
The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, supporting their social-emotional, cognitive and physical development from birth to career. In the CCCY’s afterschool programs youth receive healthy snacks, help with homework and can also explore physical fitness, arts & crafts and STEM projects. Financial assistance is available to those in need, to ensure every child and teen has the opportunity to learn and grow at the Y.
