Before and After School Childcare

Learn. Grow.

With a focus on safety, health, social-emotional growth, and academic enhancement, YMCA Before and After School Childcare programs serve kindergarten through middle school students. Children at the YMCA explore and develop their interests and talents through a wide range of activities.

Children who participate in our programs make friends, learn new skills, and do their homework in a supportive, learning-conducive atmosphere. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. The Y supports today's youth and helps them build confidence for the future. 

If you are looking for a rich learning environment for your school-age child, look no further than the YMCA.


Our in-school childcare programs provide services for children ages 5 to 12 years.


Each year our before and after-school childcare programs have over 700 participants.


These programs can be found in participating schools throughout the Portland and Vancouver Metro Areas.
