We will be offering after school care at Bridge Street, Ryan Road and Jackson Street elementary schools in Northampton.

Registration is open to YMCA members and non-members.  State subsidized vouchers are accepted and financial assistance is available for qualified families.

The Hampshire Regional YMCA is a trusted community partner committed to ensuring quality, EEC licensed child care programs.  Our experienced staff strive to create an environment in which children can explore, build relationships, learn, and express themselves all while in a safe and supervised setting. The YMCA seeks to support and strengthen families while helping children develop to their fullest potential.

Children in our after school program receive homework support and engage in activities that build on what they learned during the school day.   Our daily schedule includes physical activity and play time, and a healthy snack each afternoon.  YMCA staff implement a balanced curriculum from seven core content areas:

Arts and humanities

Character development

Health, wellness and fitness


Science and technology

Service learning

Social competence and conflict resolution
