Childcare is designed to promote and enhance academic achievement, spark your child’s imagination and expand their confidence, skills and talents by pairing physical activity with homework support and project based learning. This program is available at the YMCA of Port Angeles and the YMCA of Jefferson County.

Everyday at the Y we create outstanding child-centered programming in a nurturing learning community where the values of honesty, respect, responsibility and caring are learned and developed. Childcare is designed to be flexible enough for working families, with classes that empower kids to make

healthy choices and try new skills.

We start each afternoon with a healthy snack, students then get a 1/2 hour of exercise, both indoors and out, followed by focused time in the YMCA where tutors help with homework and provide quiet games that support academic achievement. Enrichment classes are held from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm allowing youth to explore a variety of arts, hobbies and sports. Enrichment classes rotate monthly.

Childcare Registration Packets must be filled out for each participant at your local YMCA.
