The YMCA offers before and after school childcare in the Cafeteria at Explorer K-8. This is a program for working parents that need peace of mind knowing how and where there child is being cared for. We are a licensed facility (Lic. #C05HE0084) and we are able to offer county assistance, as well as financial aid. While at the program our child(ren) will experience different centers such as exploring, creative writing, homework time, group activities, and games aimed at developing good sportmanship.

Hours of Operation: 6:30 a.m until the start of school and 4:00-6:00 p.m.
