Afterschool Care

For Youth Development.  For Healthy Living.  For Social Responsibility.

Values Learned Early

The Y works in partnership with Elementary Schools giving PrimeTime Y the advantage of a safe, comfortable space to conduct a quality afterschool child care program in designated classrooms, shared-space pod areas and the cafeteria. It allows our staff to become involved in the school, meet and work with the teachers and counselors and communicate directly with parents.

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At PrimeTime Y, children learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Learn, Grow, Thrive with the Y

You'll know they are growing and exploring their potential; they'll think they are just having fun.
