In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our before and after school programs have been modified to ensure the safety of all program participants and staff. Space in each program will be limited and protocol is subject to change. We encourage you to read your location’s Health and Safety Plan and enroll as soon as possible.
Turning in paperwork does NOT guarantee care. Upon completion of paperwork, a center director will call or email to confirm your child’s enrollment and start date.
The YMCA is the largest childcare provider in the United States and for good reason! Since the 1980’s, the YMCA of Reading and Berks County has provided our area with high quality, attentive childcare programs.
In our before and after school programs, we provide a safe, fun place to play and learn to children in kindergarten through sixth grade. While you’re at work, you can rest easy knowing your child is making the most of their time. While it may seem like just a few short hours, we make the time count with fun activities which not only help them learn, but also build strong bonds with their fellow classmates. Here is just a short list of what you can expect from your before and after school care center:
- Homework Help
- Hands-on STEAM learning
- Nutritious and delicious snacks
All Child Care
The greatest compliment our YMCA families can give us is referring a friend to one of our outstanding YMCA child care centers. We are proud to share our new Refer a Friend Program which entitles you to a $50.00 credit on your child care account. Each time you recommend a friend to a YMCA Child Care location, as a result of your recommendation to other families, a $50.00 credit will be applied to your account. The credit will be received after the new enrollee has attended child care for 60 consecutive business days.
