Research shows that youth who participate in before and after-school programs succeed academically, are healthier and exhibit positive behaviors.

The Before and After School Program is staffed by qualified, trained personnel who meet Texas licensing requirements and all  are CPR/First Aid certified along with pre-service training required by TDFPS.  Staff also receive 30 hours of training during the school year.  We complete reference checks and extensive background checks including fingerprinting on each of our before and after-school staff.

Our staff-to-child ratio strives to be 1:22.  All of our programs take place at the school where your child attends (or they are transported to the Central YMCA – noted below).

The Y is the largest child care provider in the nation and we consider it an honor to serve the Arlington-Mansfield area!

Our Before and After-school program:

  • Gives kids and teens a safe place to go before and after school
  • Helps them realize who they are and what they can achieve
  • Is a balanced program built on academic support, health, and enrichment programming
  • Kids have the opportunity to have fun, complete homework, play games, do science experiments and enjoy awesome special events
