K - 6th Grade

Join us for school year fun and allow your child to learn, grow, and thrive at the Y, while creating lasting friendships and developing lifelong skills! We offer flexible daily After School childcare for children in K-6th grade. Transportation from schools to designated site location is provided daily by Winona Area Public Schools. Our after school care program strives to create a safe and welcoming environment for children and promote the YMCA core values through lessons focused around youth development, healthy living, and social-emotional learning. Children have time for games and activities, a healthy snack, daily outdoor and gym time, playtime, arts and crafts and team building. In addition, homework time with the help of well-trained counselors. Registration is limited. 

​Immunization Records are REQUIRED before care starts.
