Excel After the Bell

The Y has worked in the childcare and after-school space for years, and our holistic approach helps children improve their study habits and reading skills, build healthy eating and physical activity habits, and gain exposure to the arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), global learning and more.

After-school programs can turn the hours after school into a productive learning time and make learning fun. We are willing and confident in our ability to provide safety and supervision to help children continue to learn, grow and thrive. Our Ys offer member discounts on after-school care and have three different options for childcare in Greensboro, NC, Jamestown and Rockingham County, from Kindergarten through Middle School.

Join our interest list (click here) for Spears, Ragsdale or Hayes-Taylor YMCAs. If a spot is available for your child based on current grade level, someone will contact you to finalize registration.
