The program provides children, grades K-6, with a safe, well-supervised environment when an adult is not home before and/or after school. Participating schools in the Collinsville Unit 10 School District include:

  • Caseyville Elementary
  • Dorris Intermediate School
  • Maryville Elementary
  • Renfro Elementary
  • Twin Echo Elementary (after school only)
  • Webster Elementary (after school only)

Children can attend the Y Club program at their school from 6:30 a.m. until the beginning of the school day (Please note: some schools do not offer morning care option); and after school from dismissal until 6:00 p.m.  Safe, fun, and constructive activities are offered, such as arts and crafts, sports, games, and academic support.

All sites are directed by competent, experienced YMCA staff.  Policies have been created with the child’s safety as the top priority.
