WHERE THE LEARNING CONTINUES

The Y’s Choice Afterschool Program in Belleville's seven elementary schools offers afterschool fun and learning for kindergarten through fifth grade students. With a perfect blend of socialization, recreation and academic support, the Y’s Choice creates a safe, structured supplement to your child’s school day.
 
Whether your child needs homework help or enrichment, you can rely on our program to offer the academic tools your child needs. And our full range of exciting arts and sports activities are designed to meet your child’s interests.
 
All afterschool students participate in the CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Childhood Health) Program, designed to help children develop healthy eating and exercise habits. CATCH is unique in its emphasis on non-elimination games and continuous movement - fun for the star athlete and the student who is more comfortable in the library.
