YWCA Before and After School Programs
Summer Camp Program
The YWCA Northern New Jersey offers exceptional before and after school programs at several schools in the Dumont School District. Our programs combine guidance and security with fun to give school age children the freedom and structure they need. They're active, so we promote indoor and outdoor play and cooperative games. They're creative, so we encourage dramatic play, arts, and crafts. They're personalized so those kids who need to do homework are given a quiet space. We also provide a healthy snack every afternoon.
Before School Program hours are 7:30am to the start of school
After School Program hours are 3:00-6:00pm and coverage for 1/2 day dismissals
We also offer, for an additional fee, 7:30am to 7:00pm extended day care during some school breaks. Advance registration is required.
