At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our Afterschool Care is staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.
At the Y, school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework. Most importantly, they learn how to be their best selves. The result? Confident kids today. Contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That’s why Afterschool Care at the YMCA of Central Texas focuses on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to:
• learn foundational skills
• to develop healthy, trusting relationships
• to build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
