Before and After School Care


YMCA of Delaware Before & After School Enrichment programs and staff are dedicated to providing a safe and engaging environment, where kids feel accepted and are in a setting where they can learn grow and thrive. Using an evidence-based curriculum, the Y creates a space where children can be creative, expand their horizons, challenge themselves and find comfort in our nurturing approach to youth development with homework support provided by our friendly and certified staff.

The Y is committed to providing excellence in all of our youth development programs and our Before & After School Enrichment programs participate in the Delaware Stars Quality program, a state wide Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) administered by the Delaware Department of Education.
