After School Program at School Locations
The YMCA Afterschool program is available at 26 schools in the Tampa Bay area. The program is dedicated to nurturing child development with experienced and CPR/First Aid-certified counselors. The Tampa Y BASE staff provides a safe and healthy place for children to learn foundational skills, develop healthy and trusting relationships, and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Our schedule is comprised of an open ceremony/attendance, free snack, STEAM projects, Arts and Crafts, Study Hall with Homework Assistance (Monday through Thursday between 2:30pm and 4:30pm, estimated time 40 minutes), Physical Fitness, Centers, Service Learning and FUN. To learn more about our program, policies and procedures please check out our BASE Parent Handbook.
AM care begins at 6:30am, and after school care is available from school dismissal until 6pm.
