Before & After School Enrollment Going on Now!

The Hopkins County Family YMCA is one of the area’s leading providers of quality child care programs including Before and After School, Day Camp, Preschool and Out of School Days Program.

At YMCA After School, kids expand their learning beyond the classroom.  We use a balanced curriculum with opportunities for character development, STEM activities, arts and physical activity.  YMCA After School is a structured program with time for kids to start homework, engage in active fun and enjoy a snack with friends.

Y School Age Programs give your child the opportunity to get to know some of their classmates better as they engage in active play and collaborate on fun projects.  In the process, they’ll continue to develop the physical, educational, emotional and social skills that are essential for their success.

Our program focuses on social growth, healthy living and extended academic support.  Your child will have the opportunity to participate in activities that allow them to make friends, do their homework, develop new skills and, of course, have fun!  Y After School is a safe place for children to play, learn and grow.  When out of school, our qualified and caring staff focus on nurturing the development of each child.  We provide a place to have fun, make new friends and become more active.

Children create lasting memories as they engage in a variety of educational and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve.  The YMCA’s School Age Childcare Programs build self-esteem, values and leadership skills.  We offer Hopkins County star-rated, licensed programs designed for grades K-5, based on the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.


Registration is now open for After School Care for the 2018-2019 school year.


We offer activities that are purposefully designed to boost your child’s confidence, enrich their social and physical development, and encourage self-expression.


Our program transforms the hours before and after school into a time of opportunity for school-age students:

  • Promoting holistic health – Our curriculum emphasizes healthy living in every aspect of our program, from the snacks we serve to the activities we organize.
  • Locally-based – We provide our programs to students at a variety of Hopkins County schools, as well as the YMCA Kid Center, and work with educators to benefit as many families as possible.
  • Learning outside the classroom – Students at all of our programs have space to complete their homework and work with YMCA Staff when they need help.
  • A safe space for all – As part of the YMCA, we create a safe, nurturing environment for school-age children, regardless of their ability to pay.

And don’t forget about our Out of School Days Program: when school’s out, the Y is in!  Join us during school holidays, snow days and in-service days for fun games and learning along the way.  They will have opportunities to make new friends and engage in indoor and outdoor activities in a safe, positive environment.
