Before & After Care

The Hastings YMCA provides Before & After Care for Malone Elementary and Intermediate Schools in Prescott, WI. The program is located in the Malone Intermediate School. For your convenience, the school district provides transportation to and from Malone Elementary for K-2 students in the before and after care program located at Malone Intermediate School. Safety is our top priority. Parents sign students into the program in the morning and parents sign them out at pick up time.

School Release Days

Kids have a blast in the Y’s full-day recreational program on school release days and school vacation breaks. It’s safe, fun, full of age-appropriate activities that stretch kids’ minds and bodies – and gives them opportunities to practice caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Kids are engaged and entertained

Each day is different – there’s a whole lot of things to do and places to go. Arts and crafts, group games, sports, indoor and outdoor play, themed projects and field trips are just some of the ways your child might spend their day.
