Before & After Care

Before and After Care Club

The Illinois Valley Y-Before-and after-school care programs serve our area families by supplying a safe and entertaining place for children to focus on social growth and academic enhancement while parents have the freedom to work or study. These programs provide children with options to explore and develop their interests and talents, and allow parents the comfort of knowing that their children’s needs are well cared for by highly qualified, CPR and First Aid-certified staff.

Children are like sponges—they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.

That’s why our after-school program is staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.

Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
