Argonne K-5 Enrichment Program
The Argonne YMCA After School Program is an on-site program serving grades K-5. The program provides academic support and enrichment opportunities for youth from the time school ends until 6:00pm. We are confident this program will allow the students to build healthy relationships and express themselves and their interests in a safe place. Below is an example of what a day in the life at Argonne YMCA will look like this school year.
Sample Daily Schedule
- 2:40-3:00 Sign In, Snack and Community Circle
- 3:00-3:30 Outdoor Recreation
- 3:30-4:30 After School Enrichment Program
- 4:30-5:30 Academic Support
- 5:30-6:00 Snack and Recreation Time
Students can register part-time with two or three days a week or full time with five days a week.
Each day of program offers enrichment activities that are based on themes and are age level focused. This next school year the YMCA will be enhancing the enrichment activity options within our program through community partner and staff led curriculum. Students will be able to choose from a variety of enrichment activities throughout the year!
