Detail: At the Y, After School Programs are more than just kid-watching. On those critical hours where your children should be safe and supervised, we engage them in learning activities that enrich their learning outside school. Our Kaimuki-Waialae Y has four A+ sites: Kahala, Aina Haina, Palolo and Kuhio. Through a partnership with the Department of Education, the YMCA of Honolulu provides after school care for nearly 7,000 children in grades K-6 through the A+ program at 54 public schools on Oahu. The goal of the A+ Program is to reduce the high incidence of latchkey children and to provide affordable afterschool child care services to children in the public elementary schools. We also provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment with a rich variety of activities for your children while you work, attend school, or are in job training programs. The program starts immediately after the close of the school day. Children report to the base site for the A+ Program at their school. In general, during the first 30 minutes or so, children check in and are given time for free play/snack. After free play/snack, children are encouraged and given time to complete their homework, and then they participate in enrichment, physical development/coordination activities. Enrichment includes activities such as arts, crafts, drama, music and dance. Physical development/coordination activities include physical fitness activities, sports and games. The A+ Program is not an extension of the regular school day. While some structure is necessary for order and control, activities will be offered in a comparatively informal setting where children are given the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities.
