Looking for safe, nurturing place for your child before and/or after regular school hours? Our Before School and After School Program is the perfect answer! Since the mid-70s, thousands of children and families have benefited from our exceptional program that inspires and engages children in learning, provides opportunities for play and socialization, encourages children to explore their interests, and provides peace of mind for working parents.

Our core curriculum includes a multicultural program that provides a variety of interesting, social, educational, fun, physical, and creative activities that engage and stimulate your child’s growth. The curriculum also includes a bullying-prevention program that foster self-esteem and teaches children to respect themselves, others, and the environment.

Daily activities include homework time, group games, teambuilding activities, sports, arts & crafts, adventure, science, and a healthy lifestyle planning program. A healthy snack is also provided to help children concentrate on having fun! Throughout the school year, Enrichments are also offered at most schools for an additional cost.

Our program is licensed by the State of New Jersey, Department of Children and Families Office of Licensing. The YWCA Princeton After School Program is a member of the Afterschool Alliance, NJSACC, and a participant in the annual national Lights On Afterschool celebration.

Registration for the new school year opens July 1, 2019. Tuition for the After School Program varies based on number of days and length of the program.

The YWCA Princeton After School Program will be hosting an Ice Cream Social on August 28, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm on the Bramwell House Lawn. The Ice Cream Social will serve as a fun way for the After School Program Riverside and Community Park staff to meet the families they will be serving for the 2019-2020 school year. Small outdoor activities will be available for the children’s enjoyment and ice cream will be provided.
