after school child care

The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth is one of the largest providers of school-age child care in Tarrant County. Whether at the school site or at the YMCA, children are given a supervised, structured before-and-after school fun place to be. Many branches' school-age child care programs are located on-site for the convenience of working parents.

New! Y-Fit Program: Y-Fit provides students with 60 minutes of structured physical activity and nutrition education programming. Y-Fit utilizes SPARK, a research-based physical education and coordinated school health program designed to increase physical activity and promote physical activity beyond classes to become a component of an active lifestyle. Students will participate daily in activities such as Fitness Fun, Cool Cooperatives, Great Games & Super Sports. In addition, students will experience hands on nutrition education with recipe planning, food demonstrations & more.
