Before & After Care

The YMCA of Hagerstown provides before and after school programs at many elementary schools in Washington County. Depending upon the daily schedule at each school, a morning program may or may not be offered. Daily activities include arts and crafts, homework assistance, snack in the afternoon & playground activities. Registration for the program is done in person at the YMCA.  Enrollment packets are available at the YMCA Front desk or can  be found here. The packet contains several forms which need to be completed in full. These forms are required and must be completed in order for your child to attend because the program is licensed through the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) .  A deposit is required at the time of registration. The programs also participates with Maryland EXCELS and accepts State of Maryland childcare vouchers.
