About the Program
Y Club school-age child care makes certain that the time gaps before and after school are filled creatively and constructively. Kids have the opportunity to express their talents in the arts, sports and other areas of interest, taking advantage of all the Y has to offer.
Parents should rest easy in knowing Y Club is licensed by the State of Missouri and all child care staff members receive extensive training through the national and local YMCA. The Y cares for more than 5,400 kids in school-age child care programs and another 500 in Early Childhood Education Centers every day.
The Y is an advocate for children and our voice is heard on the national, state and local level. The YMCA of Greater St. Louis is involved with the National School-Age Child Care Alliance, National Association for the Education of Young Children, Missouri School-Age Child Care Community, the St. Louis Youth Provider Network, Child Day Care Association, St. Louis Partnership and United Way.
The Downtown-Marquette YMCA hosts Y Club school age child care at Gateway Elementary School. If you are interested in registering your child for our program or would like more information, please contact Liz Frame at 314-436-4100.
