In YMCA Before & After School Care, kids engage in physical and educational activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. It’s a safe place to learn, have fun, and get active before and/or after the regular school day.

  • Enrollment is currently "wait-list" only for our Eau Claire sites. The Chippewa Falls sites do have open enrollment spots.
  • If you are in need of care, please register your child for the desired school site - your child will automatically be placed on the wait-list.
  • Once there are enough children on the wait-list to offer care at that location, we will notify both the families and school district that site will be opening for care.
  • We apologize that we cannot guarantee care at all of our usual locations at this time. Low enrollment due to the COVID-19 and hybrid teaching models has created new challenges for our program offerings.

Important Information

  • Do not wait… It is important to register as soon as possible. The sooner we have acceptable enrollment numbers at certain sites, the sooner we can confirm that we be able to offer care. Otherwise, is there is low enrollment for a specific site, that location will not be offered for Before & After School Care.
  • Automatic payments will process the Friday of the week before care takes place.
  • Eau Claire Only - Due to COVID-19, we will be allowing schedule changes, but changes must be stated on your monthly calendar. 
  • For those who qualify through the county, economic support will be available for those enrolled in both full day care and the YMCA Before & After School Care program.

Program Day

  • Because the school district is utilizing a hybrid model of in-person and virtual learning, the YMCA program will reflect a classroom structure with staff assistance for virtual learning during regular school day hours.
