West Suburban YMCA Providing Afterschool Care

The West Suburban YMCA’s Out of School Time program returns to a traditional afterschool format offering after school care for children in grade K-8 starting on April 5th when Newton Public Schools return to full-time in-person schooling. This comes after spending the school year supporting students and families through a virtual learning academy, where students came to the Y during the school day to complete their virtual learning.

“We are so excited to be able to get back to our after-school format and engage kids in activities outside of schoolwork,” says Out of School Time Director Kaitlin McCarthy. “We will be focusing on ‘unplugging’ and offering enrichment activities, clubs, and much needed time outdoors!”

OST will run Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:30 – 6:00 pm and Wednesdays from 1:15 – 6:00 pm. Kids will have opportunities for homework and academic support, sports, arts and crafts projects, games, and social activities.

The Y offers transportation from Burr, Bowen, Cabot, Franklin, Horace-Mann, and Lincoln-Eliot schools via bus for a fee of $5/day and from Underwood via a chaperoned walking route free of charge.

The West Suburban YMCA is a non-profit charitable organization and it is their mission to never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. The West Suburban YMCA is operating in accordance with all guidelines and recommendations outlined by the CDC, the state of Massachusetts, and local health authorities.
