Before and After School Care

Taking care of tomorrow’s leaders

The YWCA of the Niagara Frontier offers before and after school programs for children grades K-8.

Because parents’ schedules don’t always revolve around school hours, snow days, or holidays, our before and after school care programs provide children with a safe place to stay before and after school hours. Programs consist of homework assistance, recreation, arts and crafts, and community service activities for middle and intermediate students; and fun learning activities, staff directed homework assistance, and quiet reading time for children in grades K-4. Daily snacks are provided with all programs.

School early release, school breaks, and snow-day childcare is also available at our Niagara location.

Each program has their own individual hours and schedules. Please click the links below to learn more and to find the program that best fits your needs.

All children registered will need the OCFS Daycare Enrollment form (below) filled out and signed along with the most recent copy of physical and shot records.

There is also a medication consent form (below), if needed, that will need to be filled out by both the parent and physician.

Anyone signing up for the free 21st Century after school program Mon. – Thur. at Emmet Belknap or North Park will need to also return a transportation permission slip if bussing is needed.
