Before and after school programs at the Y keep kids safe and introduce them to new friends and activities. Our programs are licensed by the state of Florida and all staff are screened by the Department of Children & Families.
Children are placed in age-appropriate groups and take part in a daily rotation of activities that include, but is not limited to: homework time, arts & crafts, guest speakers, enrichment programs/specialty clubs, physical fitness activities, learning centers and much more. The Y provides a nutritious daily snack.
