The Discovery Academy of the Y (DAY) is a daily program for students to conduct their remote learning as assigned by their schools with the guidance of YMCA instructors. It’s a supportive alternative to at-home online learning where essential health and safety guidelines are rigorously practiced. When learning blocks are over then the fun begins! Traditional enrichment programs including crafts, STEM, games, social emotional learning and various physical activities will fill the rest of the day. Students should bring their laptop/chromebook headphones, face mask, water bottle and cold lunch.
Please note the payments will be withdrawn two (2) days prior to each week of childcare.
If you need care until 5:30 you can sign up for the extended extra care at the YMCA Strafford branch. Transportation will be provided.
