The Y offers afterschool care for children enrolled in the RCPS preschool program. It is the parent's responsibility to contact the school their child attends to request transportation to a preschool after school site. Preschool sites are located at Fishburn Elementary and Fairview Elementary and are determined by RCPS.


After school care operates from school dismissal to 6:00 pm. The program will remain open on teacher workshop days, holiday breaks and snow days at a designated location.


Registration: $50

Weekly rate: $70
Multi-child discount available

Full day care: $15/day
Planned days off such as teacher work days are held at Woodrow Wilson Middle. Unplanned days off such as snow days are held at the Kirk Family YMCA.

Winter Break & Spring Break:
Children enrolled in the Y After School program are responsible for the weekly payment of $70 only during winter and spring break. Camps will take place at Woodrow Wilson Middle School.

All enrollment paperwork will be processed digitally through CampDoc. You will receive an email with the required paperwork that must be submitted prior to your child's start date. Your child will not be admitted to Y After School until all paperwork has been completed.


We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Our enrichment curriculum provides children with the opportunity to explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. Children will participate in monthly themed enrichment clubs to include: Creative Arts Club, Sports Club, STEM Club, Happy and Healthy Club, and more throughout the school year!
