Parent Handbook

Our program gives kids and teens a safe place to go before and after school. It also helps them realize who they are and what they can achieve, with a balanced program built on academic support, health, and enrichment programming. Research shows that youth who participate in after-school programs succeed academically, are healthier and exhibit positive behaviors. We want kids to have fun, play games, do science experiments and enjoy awesome special events!

The Before and After School Program is staffed by qualified, trained personnel who meet Texas licensing requirements and YMCA of the USA standards. Our staff-to-child ratio strives to be 1:15.  All of our programs take place at the school where your child attends (or they are transported to the Central YMCA – noted below).

YMCA members enjoy SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS and many save over $1,000 annually on before and after school program rates!  Visit our YMCA membership page to discover all of the benefits!
