Our before and after school programs provide convenient, reliable, and safe care for children. Serving Hunterdon County since 1985, all of our programs are licensed by the State of New Jersey. We make sure that children get individualized attention keeping our adult to child ratio averaging at 1:10.

Program Outline

The before school programs begin at 7 a.m. and run until the school day starts, and after school programs begin at dismissal and run until 6 p.m. There is a choice of attending 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week for the after school program. The before school program fee covers 5 days per week regardless of the number of days attending. Drop-in care is available for most programs, though children must be registered before attending. Please note, drop-in care is not available for Barley Sheaf, Holland after school programs, or Desmares before school program.

Program Activities Your Child Will Love

Program activities include homework time, group activities, community service projects, a time for free play, and Healthy U. A monthly calendar highlights group and themed activities and special events. Programs run on most school holidays and the holiday programs are available to children in the after school program only. There is no additional fee for holiday programs as long as the holiday falls on a day the child is regularly scheduled to attend.

Benefits of the Program

Our before and after school programs include some great benefits for parents. There’s no need to travel, as our program is located inside the school. Additionally, your child will attend these extracurricular activities at their school surrounded by classmates and peers he or she already knows. Feel secure in knowing your child is under the supervision of experienced guidance, in the longtime established and trusted YMCA.
