School Age Childcare

Help Your Student Excel After the Bell

Your child has packed their school supplies and has their outfit picked out for the first day of school. Just one more thing before you’re ready for the returning school year: your child needs a safe, enriching place to go once the school day ends. Excel After the Bell continues to be a familiar place where children can be safe, active, learning and engaged during their time out of school. Through a balanced approach to youth development, the Y’s afterschool program offers activities, mentorship and academic support, helping kids to thrive throughout the school year. 

As an organization dedicated to youth development, we know how important it is for a child to have an enriching place for learning and growth, both in and out of school. And we’re happy to be able to provide that place, allowing your child’s social, emotional, physical and academic journey to continue long after the school day ends.

  • Hours of Operation: After School 3:30-6pm and No School Days 7:30am-6pm
