Kids’ Korner is a place for children to explore new interests, meet new friends, complete homework, participate in an enrichment club, run, play, and have some fun!
Our state licensed before and after school programs are located at Middletown Public Elementary Schools, Edna C. Stevens & Woodside Intermediate School (also serving CMS) in Cromwell and Valley View School (also serving Gildersleeve) in Portland.
For more than 30 years, YMCA Kids Korner has been working in partnership with parents and local school systems to assure that children are safe, and having fun in a supervised and enriching program during the before and after school hours.
Kids Korner is much more than just a great school age child care program. It's a wonderful way to extend the school day by exploring new interests, enjoying healthy recreational pursuits, engaging in enrichment activities and benefiting from academic support. And all the while, kids are making friends and having fun under the supervision of well trained youth development professionals.
There are 11 program sites conveniently located in all Middletown public elementary schools, Edna C. Stevens School and Woodside Intermediate School in Cromwell (also serving Cromwell Middle School), and Valley View School in Portland (also serving Gildersleeve and Intermediate School students).
The YMCA is committed to serving all members of our community regardless of the ability to pay the full cost of services. As a result of support from the Middlesex United Way, our Community Support Campaign and grants from the JCPenney fund the Y offers families who earn under $55,000 fees based on a sliding scale.
