Program—our After School learn, play, and grow curriculum for K-5th
Why the new name?
The YWCA’s Primary Enrichment Program
(PEP) is our After School
programming for children in Kindergarten-fifth grade. We recently renamed it
Primary Enrichment because it’s more than After School care—PEP emphasizes
excellent care, but also academics. Children in our program learn in many other
ways. They learn about empowerment, respect, sports, and healthy eating to name

in PEP receive homework help, health and wellness activities, USTA tennis
instruction, ABYSA soccer, gardening, arts & crafts, open swim, Girl
Scouts, field trips, and nutritious snacks. Transportation is provided from
select area schools.
Perhaps one of the most important aspects of bringing your
child here is he or she is guaranteed diversity, a chance to meet and make
friends with kids of other colors, races, and creeds. Very few other programs
in Buncombe County offer this important benefit.
Some of the advantages of Primary Enrichment Programming
- Maintaining a 5-Star license—no small thing, guarantees a
high level of service
- Providing four separate classroom environments
allowing students to work in age-appropriate groups
- Eliminating barriers to quality programming by providing
transportation from 10 schools per day
- Focusing on the whole child to "build the
bridge" to personal success
- Offering healthy snacks and a nutrition program
along with garden time where students learn about how food journeys "from
farm to table"
- Evening and weekend swim lesson scholarships available for eligible families
- Employing staff that represent and are invested
in the communities we serve
