Our Afterschool Program will be your child’s home away from home. Participants enjoy our thematic programming, arts enrichment activities, special interest classes, sports and fitness, and celebration of Jewish holidays and culture. Each day includes snacks and homework help, and we swim on both Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Our talented and nurturing staff of childcare professionals provides a safe environment in which children can explore and build self-esteem.
Your child will choose from a range of enrichment activities which they will participate in for the full quarter. These classes are designed to foster creative expression, self-confidence and skills in various ways. If they choose not to participate, they may go to “study hall” instead where they can finish their homework they will have already started. All Enrichment classes are included in the base cost of our program. To see our Enrichment schedule, click here.
On Fridays, the 14th Street Y Afterschool Program has Community Time from 4:15 - 5:00PM. This time will be spent working on community based project and character education. Students then are able to swim from 5:00-6:00 or take part in free play on our rooftop playground or gymnasium.
The Y picks up from local schools including P.S. 40, P.S. 19, Immaculate Conception, Children’s Workshop, the Earth School, Neighborhood School, the East Village Community School. NEST+M and PS 110 require an additional transportation fee. For more information about arranging pick up at your school, call 646-395-4356.
