Roanoke City Schools

With the start of the school year looking very different than in years past, we are making plans to adapt our program to meet the needs of our participants and families. At this time, we are planning to offer our after school program as normal in the schools we serve, and all-day programming at the Kirk Family YMCA for children when they are not in school. 

The health and safety of our children, staff, and families is our top priority and we will be following guidelines as set forth by the Virginia Health Department, state, and local officials. Due to these guidelines we will be taking children on a first-come, first-serve basis and limiting attendance to match the guidelines. 

Even though this year will look different, our commitment to providing our children with a fun and engaging place to learn, and our parents an environment where their children are being well cared for remains the same.

The Y offers afterschool care for children enrolled in the RCPS pre-k program. It is the parent's responsibility to contact the school their child attends to request transportation to a pre-k after school site. Pre-K 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.


Prices subject to change based on school operations.

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 activities to include: arts, sports, STEM, and more throughout the school year!
