YMCA of Frederick

Before & After School Care

As the largest provider of school-age programs in Frederick County, we help hundreds of children every day reach their fullest potential in a welcoming, supportive environment. By incorporating the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all of our youth services programming, we give children the solid foundation they need to thrive—not only in school, but beyond.

Formerly called Kids Club, our Before and After School (B.A.S.E.) program operates from 6:30 a.m. until the regular school day begins, and after school from school dismissal until 6:30 p.m. We follow the Frederick County school calendar and offer care on days that school opens late or dismisses early. On most school closing days, we also provide child care at designated sites. Children are provided with a nutritious snack every afternoon.


Curriculum

B.A.S.E. follows the Maryland State licensing guidelines for child care. Our directors are experienced, fully licensed child care providers with background checks and CPR/First Aid training. Children participate in recreation-based activities that incorporate the core content areas of the National YMCA curriculum including:

• Arts & Humanities
• Performing Arts
• Character Development
• Health, Wellness & Fitness
• Homework support

• Science & Technology
