After School Program

Our After School program meets Monday - Friday at the Le Mars YMCA/Gehlen Elementary on school days from after school is dismissed to 5:30pm. Kids will receive a healthy snack and participate in supervised activities that keep them active and productive after the school day ends. Some days they even get to swim! Kids can walk to the after school program or get dropped off by the Le Mars School Bus Route, the bus arrives at the YMCA's front entrance at 3:45pm. Children attending the Gehlen After School program can go into their library after the school day ends.

Our After School program provides affordable child care for working parents. Financial assistance is also available for qualifying familes. You can download a financial assistance application from our website or pick one up at the YMCA front desk. Kids in grades TK-6th can register for our After School program.

All applications, forms & payments will now be done through PlayGround, thanks to a grant from Iowa DHHS, that specializes in state licensed programs.
