Before & After School Care
YMCA in Greenfield Child Care Programs have provided a fun, diverse, safe, and comfortable environment for kids to learn, grow and thrive for over two decades. At the Y, your kids have a wealth of facilities and activities available daily, plus an option for weekly swim lessons.
Before School Care is held in the Game Room and includes quiet games, stories, fun, and use of the Kid Fit Center.
The After School Care Program, which also has the Game Room as its home base, focuses on a fitness value based curriculum that incorporates physical education, homework help and more.
Our Child Care programs are Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) licensed. We provide a staff/child ratio of no more than 1:13, and comply with all EEC safety guidelines. We encourage parents to meet our staff and observe our programs.
Transportation to the YMCA can be provided from all Greenfield Public Schools, Sheffield/Hillcrest in Turners Falls, and Gill Elementary. All travel arrangements and fees must be confirmed with the Child Care Director. We participate in the State Voucher Program and sliding fees are available as well. Priority is given to those registering for five-day options; three-day and two-day registrations are accepted if and when there is a weekly match or available space.
