Kindergarten Wrap Program

 


The Kindergarten Wrap Program is designed for children enrolled in half day kindergarten and offers an extended day option by providing flexibility for working parents. For students not enrolled in public schools, we also offer a full day Kindergarten at the Y. Our program enriches your child's day with fun, educational and creative activities dedicated to fostering your child's total growth and well-being like STEM, arts and crafts, cooking, computer time, theme days, sports and games, and swimming at the Summit YMCA. Transportation is provided to and from A. W. Roberts School, Salt Brook School and Mary K. Millian School. On school vacation days, the Y also provides a full-day holiday care option (enrollment for holiday care is separate and at an additional cost).

Please note: Due to new safety measures and limitations, some of our offerings for the 2020-2021 school year have changed and program and schedules may be subject to change upon short notice. Rest assured, providing a safe environment for your child remains our #1 priority.
