Afterschool Care

The Y knows how important it is for a child to have an enriching place to learn and grow, both in and out of school. While the school year may look different than before, our school-age programs continue to be a familiar place where children can be safe, active, learning, and engaged during their time out of school.

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year opens on May 11!

Afterschool Hours Only

The Y operates programs during the afterschool hours in Jericho, Underhill, Waterbury, Georgia, and Fairfax. For the 2021-2022 school year, we will return to Fletcher and open new programs in Bolton and Grand Isle. Click this button to register:




Burlington Afterschool Care and Full Day Wednesday

The Y has opened a “hub” program in Burlington at St. Marks church on North Avenue (officially 21 Dodds Court).

With Burlington schools offering 4 days per week of in-person instruction, we are using this space to run an afterschool program Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The afterschool program runs until 6 pm and our site is on the bus route for students from JJ Flynn, CP Smith, IAA, and the Sustainability Academy.

This program ALSO offers a full day option on Wednesdays, from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm.

Our program: 1) provides children a place where they can complete their remote work with educators; 2) offers support in furthering their education; and 3) runs engaging activities to provide fun through hands-on, inquiry-based learning using play, STEAM activities, and peer interactions.

Families must sign up for the same days each week. State Subsidy is accepted.
