Berlin Before & After School Care

Before and after school care and half-day care is available in Griswold Elementary, Hubbard Elementary, & Willard Elementary Schools for students in grades K through 5. One to three day, five day and half day options are available. 

Our well-trained and qualified staff will engage children in a wide variety of activities including sports time, arts and crafts, team building activities, outdoor time, cooperative games and more. Our programs focus on the fundamentals of the YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

The aftercare program schedule allows for homework to be completed and snack is included. A 10% discount is available to families with two or more children. Payments are made weekly through auto-draft accounts. Families must have a full or program membership with the New Britain-Berlin YMCA to enroll.

We are now offering yoga, musical theater, art, science and fitness enrichment classes for an additional fee.  Please contact Amy at 860.357.2717 to learn more.
