Before & After School CHILDCARE





For young fives through sixth grade

Working in partnership with area elementary schools, the YMCA is able to provide a safe place for kids to learn skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through Y values during the before and after school hours.  Care is also available on half school days, no school days, and during any weather delays or cancellations. 



Adrian Public Schools: 

Michener and Alexander program is at the YMCA and transported by Adrian Public School busses. Lincoln Elementary program is located at 158 S Scott, Adrian, MI 49221. Children will be at the YMCA on no school days, cancellations, delays and half days.


Madison Public Schools:

The School-Age program is held at the YMCA for Madison Public School children. They are transported before and after school on the Madison Public Schools buses. Children will be at the YMCA on no school days, cancellations, delays and half days.


Sand Creek Community Schools:

The School-Age program is only available after school. A before school program could be created if the need arises.  Children are currently bussed to the YMCA using our busses due to low enrollment. We also bus for 1/2 days and delays. Parents are asked to bring their children to the YMCA when there is a scheduled no school day or cancellation. Depending on the amount of children enrolled, the program may return to Sand Creek in the fall.


Blissfield Public Schools:

Blissfield Elementary School at 640 S. Lane St., Blissfield, MI 49228. Before and After care is available to 5 year olds and up. Care will also be available on Scheduled No School Days, Delays, Half Days and School Cancellations. Depending on the number of children enrolled at this location, school cancellations and scheduled no-school days care may be held at the YMCA.
