YMCA of the Sandhills

After School Care

The YMCA After School Program has been voted one of the TOP 3 programs in Cumberland County by readers of the Fayetteville Observer. The program's design is open to students K-grade 5, inviting all students including homeschoolers. Participants receive a balanced program in a safe and fun environment for children to call home between the hours of 3:00pm-6:00pm. Children will be provided a healthy snack and homework time before they participate in value-based devotion, structured sports, crafts and games.

The Y's program cirriculum places a priority on developing social skills, promoting a healthy lifestyle, and teaching core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Financial assistance is always available to those of need in our community. Call the Y today for more information.
