School-Age Child Care at Albemarle Family YMCA in North Carolina

With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, our before- and after-school programs serve school-age youth with options to explore and develop their interests and talents. The Y provides a quality, safe place for children to go so that parents have the freedom to work or study, knowing that their children's needs are being addressed. Our flexible schedule allows each child to freely choose what he or she wants to do during this out-of-school time.
