The Before and After School programs at Great South Bay YMCA are designed to ensure working parents that their children are safe and having fun.
“It’s a great program for working parents. Our main goal is to making sure kids are having fun and are safe as well,” say Melanie Schiavone, the school age child care director at the Y, and Cathy McKenna, the school age child care director in Massapequa.
Open enrollment for the after-school program at Great South Bay Y is offered for Bay Shore kids. Massapequa district families must enter a lottery to win an after-school slot in their schools. The YMCA also offers before-school programming at the Y and in Massapequa schools where kids in kindergarten through sixth grade can eat breakfast and participate in activities such as arts and crafts, computer time, or gym time. The before-school program runs from 7am to when kids need to leave for or start school.
