Chatham County YMCA Before & After School Enrichment

YMCA Before & After School Enrichment is that special time before school and at the end of school for children whose parents are at work. The YMCA can make this a great time to grow, to play and to be with friends. YMCA Before & After School Enrichment programs are not just supervised playgrounds. We strive to maintain a ratio that provides plenty of individual attention as well as a small group activity.

YMCA Before & After School Enrichment is held at the school your child attends. Hours for Chatham County are from 6:30 a.m. until the start of school and the end of school until 6:00 p.m.

El Cuido del YMCA Antes y Despues en la escuela es en la misma escuela que asiste su hijo. El horario de cuido por las escuelas en Chatham County es de las 6:30 a.m. hasta las 6:00 p.m.
