The YMCA School Age framework was developed in partnership with the YMCA of the USA  and the National Institute on Out-of-School-Time  (NIOST).


Through guided play children learn values, positive behaviors, to respect themselves and others, work out their difference and discover the value of friendship.

Academic support from caring role models enriches your child’s educational experience and enables families to spend more quality time together.
