Before & After-School Child Care | Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA

Safe, Affordable and Fun Child Care

With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enrichment, our before- and after-school programs serve children 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. In before and after-school programs in Norfolk, our flexible schedule allows each child to freely choose what he or she wants to do during this out-of-school time.

You can feel confident knowing that your child is safe and well cared for by highly qualified, CPR and First Aid-certified, staff. In addition, our staff also attend 20 hours of training before working with your child; these trainings include Health & Safety, Supervision, Child Development, Child Abuse Prevention and Programming. They also receive over 20 hours of training throughout the school year.
