Before & After Care

The Woodbury YMCA provides Before & After Care for children who attend Woodbury Leadership Academy. The program is located at Woodbury Leadership Academy for your convenience. Safety is our top priority. You sign into 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 Day and Holiday Care

Kids have a blast in the Woodbury 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. Check online at ymcamn.org/schoolagecare for the theme and field trip schedule.

Registrations received later than Monday, one week prior to the release day will result in a $10 premium increase in the school release day cost.


Registrations completed online can be paid at the time of registration or set up as an automatic electronic fund transfer (EFT). Payment is available for paper registrations via cash, check or EFT. You may authorize EFT on your registration form. EFTs will be processed on Tuesday prior to the week of the release day. You may login online to see your balance and make a payment.

Changes to the registration for individual release days, including cancellation, must be made in writing to the YMCA Customer Service Center by Monday, one week prior to the start of the release day. We encourage change notices to be submitted as soon as possible. If the change notice is not received, you will be billed for the original enrollment and additional days attended.
