After School Program Registration

Start and end every school day with the YMCA! To fill the gaps before and after the bell rings, you'll find unique YMCA programming right here in your community. We know children thrive in an environment where everyone belongs and can explore, learn and have fun together. And that's what you'll find at the YMCA.



Time gaps before and after school can be empty and lonely for kids — and a challenge for busy parents. YMCA of Greater Saint John's before and after school licensed care offers a healthy solution. Kids have fun and develop confidence while spending time with friends in a safe and caring environment. Parents can rest easy knowing their children are active and learning. 

Our Before School Program is recreation-based and designed to meet the unique needs and interests of the 5 to 12 year old child before they start their day at school. We offer Before School Care at our Early Learning Centre, Millidgeville Community Centre, West Side location, Forest Glen Community Centre and Quispamsis Community Centre

Our After School Program is provided at the Saint John Regional Y, Early Learning Centre, Millidgeville Community Centre (FULL), West Side location, Forest Glen Community Centre (FULL), Quispamsis Community Centre, Prince Charles School, Lakewood Heights School and Rothesay Elementary

Each day provides ample time for both quiet and active play, as well as exciting physical activities, time outside, a nutritious snack, and time with staff members who truly care. 

For children registered in a YMCA After School Program, we offer a $15 full day program on PD and Snow Days. After School children can attend any of our community centres, plus our West Side location on these days for $15.  We also offer full day care for those not registered in our After School Program for $35. You must contact the centre you wish to attend to register beforehand. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
