YMCA Before and After School Care Programs  in the North Salem School District run directly on-site at the Pequenakonck Elementary School.  Students within the PQ School reported directly to the program, while North Salem Middle School students are bused by the district to Pequenakonck Elementary School.

Our programs enable children to realize their potential in a place where fun & learning go hand in hand. With exciting and engaging activities we encourage our values of caring, honesty, respect and social responsibility. We provide a safe and nurturing space for children, as well as reassurance and flexibility to working parents. You can rest assured that your child is surrounded by caring, trained staff who provide an exciting array of daily activities.

Each site is considered a licensed School Age Child Center (SACC) by the NYS Office of Children & Family Services.  Your child’s file is subject to random inspection at any point in the school year. For this reason, registration packets must be complete before fully enrolling your child.

Kindergarten Enrichment Program – To help kindergarten students become acclimated to the school day, PQ holds half-day classes during the first few weeks of school. To support families during this transition, the Y offers a Kindergarten Enrichment Program from the end of the half-day to the regular school dismissal time. At the conclusion of the Enrichment Program day, Y staff can escort children to district busses, or to the Y’s After School Program.


For a September start we request registration by July 19th,  to ensure space and staffing.

Any application received after July 19th is subject to a $50 late fee and will be put on a wait list. *This specifically applies to returning program families.*

Registration is also accepted October-June, based on license-capacity. All participants must be YMCA members and may be enrolled in the before school program, after school program, or both.

Scholarships are available; forms can be found on our website and must be received by July 1, 2019.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
