The YMCA has formed partnerships throughout the state to bring the very best practices into their afterschool programs. One of these programs is Healthy U. CATCH Kids Club (CKC) brings healthy activity to after-schoolers and community recreation programs for children in grades K-5. CKC is composed of nutrition education materials (including snack activities) and physical activity components.
The state-licensed Y program is located at all elementary & middle schools in Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District, from dismissal until 6:30PM. Our program follows the YMCA of the USA School Age Child Care Curriculum Framework, which includes nine core content areas: Arts & Humanities, Service Learning, Character Development, Health, Wellness & Fitness, Homework Support, Literacy, Science & Technology, Service Learning, Social Competence, and Conflict Resolution.
