Hopewell Valley YMCA offers Before School Care for the Hopewell Valley Regional School District at all four elementary schools.

  • At the Hopewell Valley YMCA, we believe every child deserves the time to explore and the opportunity to discover their full potential. Hopewell Valley YMCA’s Out of School Care provides a welcoming, fun, and safe environment for children to play, create, explore, and unwind right in their school. Children participate in various indoor and outdoor activities and receive on-site homework help.

All of our programs are fully insured and Licensed with New Jersey’s Office of Licensing of the Department of Children and Families. All Site Directors and Staff take a clear and strong interest in the well-being of the children and are dedicated to making a positive lasting impression in their lives.
