Before & Afterschool Care

The Griffith Family YMCA runs Before and Afterschool Childcare for Griffith Public Schools. Our facilitators lead the children in structured activities each day including gym, art, outdoor play and games and also teach fun nutritional facts. The children’s afternoon also includes “free-time." The YMCA core values: Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility will be introduced during their stay.
