Youth Development

Program Overview

The purpose of Y School Age is to provide an affordable after school child care at the school and community sites. This program is specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of school age children and their families. Y School Age is licensed as a child care center by the Texas Department of Family Protective Services (TDFPS). 

Financial Assistance: Financial assistance is awarded in accordance to your family's financial need and funds are available through our OPEN DOORS program. For more information about our financial assistance program and documents needed upon application, please click HERE.


Curriculum: YMCA Character Development is interwoven through all curriculum components and focuses on positive core values, as well as an appreciation of healthy living habits. Children enjoy activities centered around a weekly curriculum. The curriculum allows for a variety of experiences teaching character development, science, music, creative art, drama, literacy, and active play. A light snack will be served daily. Children may bring their own snacks provided the snacks are fresh, unopened and do not require any preparation or refrigeration. Snack menus are posted at each school. The afterschool program incorporates the values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith into play, learning, and social activities.

This program is specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of school age children and their families. Enrollment is open to any child, ages 5-13 years old who is a student of the school/district in which the site is located.
