Licensed Childcare Options

The South Bay Family YMCA operates a state licensed before and after school program on some school campuses called Character Builders. This program operates from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on all school days, including minimum days. There is a cost to this program which includes morning fitness components, after school snacks, homework help, STEAM projects, recreation, and more. The South Bay Family YMCA offers scholarships to qualifying families who need help to pay for the program.

Online registration for Character Builders for the 2024-25 school year is now open. The registration fee is $100 per child. Registration is open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. Please submit your registration as soon as possible to ensure your child secures a spot in the program for the following school year.
