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.


Afterschool Hours Only

The Y operates programs during the afterschool hours in Jericho, Underhill, Waterbury, Georgia, Fairfax, and Fletcher. 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 the shift to 4 days per week of in-person instruction, we will use this space to run an afterschool program Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The afterschool program will run 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 will offer a full day option on Wednesdays, from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm.

Our program: provides children a place where they can complete their remote work with educators; offers support in furthering their education; and 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.

EvoKids Yoga

This upbeat, active yoga class will blend yoga poses, games, and mindfulness with great music and tons of fun. Yoga is perfect for combating the extra sitting that comes along with online school days — stretching muscles and building strength is crucial for helping with core strength and posture in developing bodies. Afterschool yoga helps kids let go of the stress of the school day and get their bodies moving while learning tools to improve focus.

Ages: 5-11

Location: Y Child Care at St. Marks on North Ave., Burlington (officially 21 Dodds Court)

Time: 3:30-4:30 pm
