After School

The YWCA’s Primary Enrichment After School Program offers a learn, play and grow curriculum for school age children in Pre-K through 5th grade.

 PEP emphasizes excellent care, but also STEM, the arts and reading. Children in our program learn in many ways through empowerment, respect, culture and healthy eating to name a few.
