The Indian Boundary YMCA offers a safe and positive environment for its before and after school programs for children attending full-day kindergarten through 6th grade. Our DCFS-licensed program places an emphasis on developing well-rounded youth.

Children participate in a balanced program of open play and structured activities. We offer Before Care programming from 7 to 8 a.m. and After Care programming from 3 to 6 p.m.

Children get involved in a variety of learning activities in addition to program components such as recreation, health enhancement, arts and humanities programs, nutritional snacks, service learning, character development and homework assistance. The IBY school age programs ensure that children are given a unique mix of activities that focus on developmental assets, the building blocks that teach children how to make positive and intelligent decisions throughout life.
