What your kids do OUT OF school is as important as what they do AT school.

When school is out, you need a solution to keep your kids safe and happy and keep the rest of your family running. At the Y, you’re covered with Out of School Time care (OST).

In OST, kids discover who they are and what they can achieve and your family gets the support it needs. This safe place outside of school welcomes kids ages 5-12 at 25 locations throughout the Denver metro area for positive experiences in academics, health and wellness and social-emotional learning, with passionate staff who are mentors and role models. Services includes before- and after-school care throughout the school year, as well as full-day-out care on school holidays and teacher-in-service days.

With 150 years of experience in showing kids a good time, YMCA OST provides more than just daycare or baby-sitting. Our skilled youth development staff apply their knowledge and passion to create a welcoming, fun and safe place where every child can learn, connect and grow.
