Safety, engagement, and connection found in the Y’s school-age care program

With students returning full-time to the classroom for the 2021-22 school year, the YMCA of Snohomish County is excited to welcome kids back to its School-Age Care (SAC) programs. Offering students a safe place to grow and learn is foundation to the mission of the YMCA. Through a balanced approach to youth development, Before and After School Care offers activities, mentorship, and academic support, nurturing the potential of all participants throughout the school year.

“As an organization dedicated to youth development, we know how important it is that our children have a safe and enriching environment for learning, both in and out of school,” said Peyton Tune, President and CEO. “We are pleased to be able to provide this space to the children in our community, allowing their invaluable social, emotional, physical and academic growth to continue long after the school day ends.”

The Y currently serves over 740 students at 23 sites in school districts across Snohomish County. Students remain active, learning, and engaged during their time out of school, building confidence for a successful school year and future.

The YMCA’s Before and After School programs focus on Social-Emotional, Academic, and 21st Century Skill-Based Experiential Learning in partnership with school districts and educators. The Y also emphasizes physical activity which is especially important following a year of remote/hybrid learning. Students have the opportunity to learn and lead in safe, structured, supported environment.

“Our trained staff carefully plan a unique mix of activities that focus on developmental assets, designed to engage and expand youth minds,” said Tune. “Every activity is intentionally crafted to spark every child’s imagination and encourage lifelong positive values.”

The Y offers flexible care options, including part-time or full-time care to fit each family’s needs. Financial assistance is available to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn and grow. Every SAC site is committed to keeping students and staff safe and healthy and follow all safety procedures recommended by the Department of Health.
