Great staff 
Staff model and teach the YMCA core values: Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Honesty, and incorporate them into all activities.

Affordable Care  Coming in September – the annual tuition will be billed in weekly installments and is based on your weekly schedule. Discounts are also available for multiple siblings.

It's fun! Children participate in arts and crafts, gym activities, special events and games. They also enjoy daily Healthy U physical activity games as part of our curriculum and a healthy snack.

Homework time and help is provided  There is one less thing to worry about when you get home from work.

It's safe All of our School Age Child Care sites are licensed by the State of New Jersey's Department of Children and Families, meeting and exceeding their standards. Our staff all receive on-going training throughout the year and each site has two staff members certified in CPR and First Aid.
