A Partnership in Youth Development with the UPPER DARBY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Helping Working Families Back to School

The YMCA is proud to partner with the Upper Darby School District in offering a Before and After School program that will give families an option when parents have to be at work.

At the Y, a leading nonprofit strengthening community through youth development, we work every day to help children set and achieve their personal and educational goals. We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why, we are both humbled and elated, to have been chosen as the new School Age Child Care provider for the Upper Darby School District.

Our programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of children, the need they have to feel connected and supported in trying new things and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other. At the Y, children experience literacy and learn about their world, make friends, learn new skills, and complete daily homework. More importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. All of these together, make for confident children today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

The Y is committed to creating education-driven programs that enhance a child’s school year in a safe and enriching environment. Rest assured, your kids are in good hands at the Y.

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
