School's Out Program – Offering Quality Before- And After-School Care in Your Child’s Own School

"Both of my kids LOVED their School's Out experience and, as a working mom, it truly was such a blessing! I recall days when I'd get done work early and go to pick Morgan up from School's Out, only to have her stamp her feet and grumble because she wanted to stay!"

Registration is now open for the School’s Out 2021-2022 school year. Register now and complete the forms by July 25th to receive $10 off your annual registration fee. Return to the registration portal in early August to choose your child’s schedule and pay for September. Our online scheduling will allow you to select exactly which sessions you want each month. Need one afternoon this week, but 4 next week? No problem! If your child has art club, sports practice, or a trip to Grandma’s, you won’t need to pay for days they will miss. You’ll return to the portal each month to choose your days and pay for the following month.

All registration is completed online, click on the “Register Now” button. If you have registered online for a YMCA of the Pines program at any time in the past, please sign in to your existing account. If your computer access is limited, you may still register using paper.
