After School Care, K-8

The McCormick YMCA After School Care program partners with several Chicago Public Schools during the school year. The After School Care program will be held either at the school or at the McCormick YMCA, depending on proximity to the center. Children are supervised and engaged in activities until 6 p.m., and participants must attend a minimum of 3 days per week. The selected days must be consistent within the given month. Child care rates will be drafted from your credit card each month beginning on September 1, 2018 and ending on May 1, 2019.

At the McCormick YMCA, program participants engage in arts and crafts, science and math activities, play games and sports during gym time and play in our outdoor playground, field and track when weather permits. Staff are available to transport children from the After School Care program to other YMCA programs for which the child is registered. Homework assistance is available; however, we do not offer tutoring services or one-on-one assistance. If you have any questions, please call or email Michelle Ramirez, Youth Development Director, at 773.326.2826 or
