The Y believes every child has promise, and that positive activities and influences from an early age help youth develop and achieve their potential. Our staff provide knowledge, guidance and encouragement to help children learn and thrive. After all, we need more leaders and kids of character in the world, and our Y is helping to develop them.
Focused on our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, Safe ‘n Sound provides before– and after–school programming for children in grades K-5 under the supervision of caring adults.
Our schedule allows time for homework, group games, creative time, recreational activities and character development. A snack is provided.
