After School Child Care

The Y's Guys program has been organized to provide after school activities for children in Kindergarten-5th grade. Y's Guys was developed to overcome the before and after school dilemma faced by so many families. Children have the opportunity to play games, do craft projects, finish homework, and interact with other children and adults in a safe environment. There is also all day care for "no school" days, winter and spring breaks, and snow days. All day care is also provided during the summer break if needed.  Y's Guys is a DHS licensed program.

Registration is on-going. Forms can be found with Andrea at Washington School. Please call Andrea at 641-228-2254 for more information. Depending on enrollment and staff, immediate enrollment my not be available at all times, but we will have a waiting list.
