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

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.

State subsidy for child care can be the most impactful for eligible families, but we also offer limited Y scholarship to help with demonstrated need.
