Before & After Care
The YMCA in Shoreview provides Before & After Care for children who attend Arden Hills District 621 elementary schools. The program is located in the school for your convenience. Safety is our top priority. You sign-in to the program in the morning and students walk to class when school starts. In the afternoon, students walk from class to the program site and you sign them out at pick up time.

School Release Days
When school is out, the Y is in! The Shoreview Y offers a full-day recreational program for school age children available during school release days and vacation breaks.

Our program creates a safe, fun-filled environment where school age kids actively stretch their mind and body. Through age-appropriate activities, arts and crafts, group games, sports and field trips, kids learn about caring, honesty, respect and responsibility under the guidance of our YMCA staff.

Wonderful outdoor and indoor spaces at the Y give kids a wide variety of options. Intriguing daily themes guide engaging activities and give kids topics to look forward to such as cooking projects or special interest clubs. Themes and field trip schedules are available through the branch or school site.

School Release Days are available in New Brighton and Shoreview for ISD 621.
