Before & After School Program

2020/2021 Update

We will be offering a program this fall, in the schools that we had a program in last year.  Please note the program will be different and we will be working with each school to ensure we can offer a program that is safe for the children, staff and the school. We will continue to post changes as they come. We will not be able to register those on the waitlists for spots until we get further information from the principals. Thank you for your patience. 

Before & After School Program

The YMCA of Brandon, in conjunction with the Brandon School Division and the United Way, offers a Before & After School care program at 16 schools. Students are provided with a range of activities directly in the school. YMCA staff cares for school-aged children before the school day from 7:30 am until school begins, and after school from the last bell until 5:30 pm.


Available at the following schools: George Fitton, J.R. Reid, Waverly Park, Riverheights, Riverview, Meadows, Harrison, New Era, Green Acres, King George, Kirkcaldy Heights, Betty Gibson, Forrest Elementary, R.J. Waugh Elementary (Carberry), Linden Lanes, and Maryland Park (*Linden Lanes and Betty Gibson also provide a Y lunch program).

How to Register

2020—2021 Before & After School Registration 

We have changed our registration process for all Before & After School programs. 

Starting March 23, 2020, we will have an open registration process in that parents can add their child’s name to our waitlist at any time. When spots become available,  YMCA staff will contact the next person on the waitlist. Waitlists will be open year-round. 

Parents can register for the waitlist online or come into the YMCA. When you register for the waitlist, it does not guarantee you a spot in the program. YMCA staff will contact you when and if a spot becomes available. 

Children must attend the school you are registering for. 

Once accepted into the program, you will need the registration form and a pre-authorized payment form. Payment methods include:  visa, mastercard, or pre-authorized debit. You will need credit card information, a void cheque or bank stamp on the form.
