The Kenosha YMCA Before and After school program is offered throughout the community and is more than just a safe place before and after school for students. The BASE (Before and After School Enrichment) program is focused on enrichment and learning for everyday life. The Y believes in strengthening communities through youth development because a community is stronger when all children have the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.
The caring YMCA staff follows all state licensing standards while nurturing the potential of every child. Daily structured activities that teach the Four Core Values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring are balanced with “choice-free time.”
The YMCA Before and After School program offers care to children at the YMCA building and several KUSD schools, including:
- Kenosha YMCA-Callahan Family Branch
- Dimensions of Learning
- Prairie Lane
- Forest Park
Before-school care opens at 6:30 am until school starts, and after-school care is available from dismissal until 6:00 pm.
