Palisades-Malibu YMCA

School-Age Child Care

Our before-school and after-school programs offer working parents a safe haven for their children outside regular school hours. We provide a staff-to-child ratio of 1:14 and year-round care by instructors who specialize in education and child development.

“I’m a single mother and my 11-year old son needs someplace to go after school. I work until 6:00 pm, so knowing he’s in a safe place and able to complete his homework before I pick him up is a huge relief.”

Our thoughtful curriculum includes homework time, fun enrichment classes and the chance to work with community organizations. Your child’s safety is our priority, so we also require a majority of our childcare staff to be certified in CPR, first aid and water safety. Every member of our team undergoes a thorough background check prior to employment.

As we recognize the importance of quality care for kids, financial assistance is available to qualifying families.

Protection, support, peace-of-mind.

Turn your child’s academic challenges into a learning experience. As a partner with local elementary schools, the Palisades-Malibu YMCA enrichment programs enhance and complement the curriculum presented to your child at school.

Well-trained, responsible staff provide quality supervision for your kids. Your child will participate in fun and educational activities. Activities include fitness, arts & crafts, homework time and character development in our safe, friendly environment!
