The YMCA Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Program is a cooperative effort between local schools and the Gateway Region YMCA. The program provides children, grades K-6, with a safe, well supervised environment when an adult is not home before and/or after school. Participating schools in the Collinsville Unit 10 School District include:
- Dorris Intermediate School
- Jefferson Elementary
- Maryville Elementary
- Renfro Elementary
- Twin Echo Elementary
- Webster Elementary
Children can attend the Y Club program at their school beginning at 6:30 a.m. until the beginning of the school day; and after school from dismissal until 6:00 p.m.. Safe, fun, and constructive activities are offered, such as arts and crafts, sports, games, and academic support.
All sites are directed by competent, experienced YMCA staff. Policies have been created with the child’s safety as the top priority. For more information, call the CMT YMCA at 618-346-5600 or visit http://www.gwrymca.org/
