Before and After Care
The YMCA in Shoreview provides Before and After Care for children who attend St. Croix Preparatory Academy. The program is located in the school for your convenience.

At the Y we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. Child care provided by the Y is more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills and develop healthy, trusting relationships. At the Y School Age Care program, kids can explore their unique talents and interests helping them to realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Safety is our top priority. Parents/guardians sign their children into the program in the morning and students walk to class when school starts. In the afternoon, students walk from class to the School Age Care Program and parents/guardians must sign them out at pick up time.
