Y Kids Club is a state licensed school aged child care program offered in the following Norfolk Public Elementary Schools in Norfolk, Nebraska – Bel Air, Jefferson, Montessori at Lincoln, Westside, and Woodland Park.

Y Kids Club provides Before and After School Child Care at the schools. Before Care begins as early as 6 am until school begins, and After Care begins as soon as school is dismissed until 6 pm. Y Kids Club is also available from 6 am – 6 pm at the YMCA on School Out Days, Holiday Break Days, Snow Days, and Summer (Day Camp) – these days are open to anyone in grades K-6th; child does not have to be in the Y Kids Club program to participate.

Monthly Calendars are always available at each Kids Club location, the YMCA Information Center, and on this webpage. Please note the days your child comes to the Y for swimming and other activities!

See the Winter Weather flyer to the left for more information about late starts, snow days, and early dismissals.

A Typical Day in Kids Club

In the mornings, children can choose from a variety of fun activities to do before being dismissed to class; board games, Legos, coloring, gym games, etc.  In the afternoons, children are served a snack, followed by Reading Time/homework, and then the rest of the afternoon is filled with free time, group games, crafts, and/or outdoor play time.  On Wednesdays, certain Kids Club schools are picked up by the YMCA bus and transported to the Y for a Swim Day! We're typically in the pool from 3:00-3:50 pm. Each School swims about once per month. In the afternoons, you can pick your child up at any time. Program ends at 6:00 pm.
