BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM (BASP)
With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance.
Once children reach school age, multiple influences enter their lives. YMCA Before and After School Program (BASP) ensures that the time after school is occupied creatively and constructively. BASP is an exciting and challenging place, where children ages 5-12 stretch their skills in mind and body. Programs offer a combination of free-choice and structured activities. Expanded curriculum includes arts and crafts, science, service learning, health & fitness, homework support, literacy, character development and conflict resolution. All programs promote the four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our BASP child care programs are licensed by the New York State Office of Child & Family Services and local health departments. Our programs are offered in partnership with area school districts and various other organizations, offering care after school in eight locations.
