Y Club Afterschool Care

Excel After the Bell with the YMCA’s Afterschool Club!

Our Y Club afterschool care program includes a variety of activities to keep your child engaged, healthy, and happy after the school day is done. From free play and physical activity to healthy snacks and homework help, we provide a safe and supportive environment where kids can learn, grow, and have fun with their peers. We also provide a variety of hands-on activities so kids can deepen their understanding of the art, science, math, and physical education.

All Y Club staff are trained, qualified and have cleared a background check, so you can be confident that your child is receiving safe, quality, and supportive care after school each day.

We Also Offer No-School-Days Childcare!

When school is out, the Y is in! Let your child spend the day with us roller skating, swimming, enjoying games, crafts, and more! The Y will provide lunch and a snack. Please bring a swimsuit, towel, tennis shoes (no outside roller skates allowed) and nothing else from home. Sign up in person at the Osage Prairie YMCA.
