School Age


Are you ready for the new school year? We’re still enrolling children in our before and after school programs. Our School Age Child Care programs require participants to attend a minimum of 3 days a week. The selected days must be consistent within a given month. Parents may change the selected days if Leaning Tower YMCA is notified by the 10th of the prior month and space is available. (Example: Leaning Tower YMCA needs to be notified by September 10 if a parent would like to change their child’s program days for October). Child care rates will be drafted from your credit card each month beginning on September 1, 2018 and ending on May 1, 2019. A $30 deposit as well as the September payment are due at the time of registration for each program. Contact the Membership Desk at 847.410.5108 for details.

Before School, K-8

The Leaning Tower YMCA Before School Program partners with Edgebrook Elementary and is held at the school. Children are supervised and engaged in activities beginning at 7 a.m. Program participants engage in homework help, visual arts, science and math activities, and play games and sports at the Edgebrook playground when weather permits. We offer before school programming at local elementary schools. For a complete list, contact the program director.

After School, K-8

The Leaning Tower YMCA After School Program partners with the schools listed above and is held at the Leaning Tower YMCA. Children are supervised and engaged in activities until 6 p.m. for the After School Program. Program participants engage in homework help, visual arts, science and math activities, play games and sports in our gym and play in our outdoor playground, field and track when weather permits. Staff are available to transport children from the After School Program to other YMCA programs for which the child is registered
