Club Kid

WHERE KIDS EXCEL
BEFORE & AFTER THE BELL

The YMCA of Middletown continues to follow all state and local health department guidelines to implement the safest childcare protocols possible in our Club Kid program. The Y also works with each school district’s administrators to ensure our program meets the unique needs of each district.

Club Kid provides safe, fun, and supervised care before and after school at numerous elementary schools in Orange County. Please scroll down to see the details for Club Kid in your child’s school district.

Each Club Kid program follows their school district’s calendar. Club Kid is registered and licensed by the New York State Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS).

The Y strives to provide an exciting and stimulating environment, giving children the opportunity to make activity choices that best suit their individual needs and interests while encouraging personal growth, socialization, and an appreciation for diversity. The YMCA Core Values of CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT, and RESPONSIBILITY are reflected in all that we do.

The AM Club Kid program helps children start the day right with activities such as arts and crafts, games, and quiet time for last-minute school projects. In the PM Club Kid program children have the opportunity to participate in activities; snack, homework time, arts and crafts, outside play, gym time, and other special events to create a diverse afternoon full of FUN.
