The YMCA of Greater Houston has chosen to delay registration for the school year 2020-21, so that we learn more about the district plans for 2020-2021 school year calendar in response to COVID-19 so we can offer care that will meet the new emerging needs of our families. Registration for the 2020-21 school year will open on mid-June.

Safety Protocols


The YMCA Before and After School program provides youth with a safe place to go during out of school time. More importantly, it helps youth realize who they are and what they can achieve. Activities promote positive social interactions, indoor and outdoor play and reinforce academic and social learning concepts.

Why Parents Love the Y

Why Parents Love the Y

Parents love Y After School because our program is safe, convenient and affordable while allowing students the time to learn, explore and make new friends!

Learning Builds Brighter Minds

“The program has been a great experience for my child. He is always happy when I arrive to pick him up and excited to tell him about what he did and learned at After School. This keeps my husband and I happy to not have to worry about how he is or how he’s doing while we finish up our work days. The cost is also very affordable for us.”
