YMCA After School Care at YIES
Are you looking for an after school care option for a child in preschool through fifth grade?  The Y offers care from three to five days a week, Monday through Friday.  Children that don’t attend YIES can be bussed from their YSC school.  While under the guidance of our caring staff, children meet new friends, read, play games, get daily healthy snack and physical activity, learn about nutrition, and learn the Y’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.  If you would like to learn more about this program, download the registration packet here or contact Child Care Director, Sarah Kim at skim@annarborymca.org,734-661-8058 or Youth Community Program Director, Colette Hemker at chemker@annarborymca.org, 734-661-8031.

In 2013, Michigan became the 39th U.S. state to enact a law that regulates sports concussions and the process regulating a youth athlete’s return to athletic activity. A concussion is a mild brain injury, caused by a blow, bump or jolt to the head that can have serious health consequences. It can occur in any sport or recreational activity. The Y is taking the several steps to comply with the Michigan Sports Concussion Law and protect the welfare of young people who participate in our sports programs, including providing parents and participants with educational materials and by having all instructors and volunteers complete the necessary online training.

Please make sure you read over the educational materials with your child before signing and returning them. Our first priority is the safety of all participants.


All students need to be picked up no later than 5 minutes after the end of their program. Please make sure they check-out with their instructor before leaving.



The cost of each program (class or league) is $30. Through the generous contributions of our donors, the Ann Arbor YMCA is able to provide scholarships if needed. If you would like to apply for financial assistance, please check the box on the registration form indicating how much you are able to contribute toward the cost of each program.
