Kindergarten Plus Program

The Kindergarten Plus full-day program takes place at Grace Church on non-school days. The program curriculum is aligned with the Olentangy Local District’s Kindergarten curriculum and is designed to complement classroom learning. 

Kindergarten Plus Program

Thanks to the Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services TANF funding, the YMCA is able to serve 100 additional children and their families in the after school hours at Highland Park Elementary, the Vaughn E. Hairston YMCA and Fairwood Elementary. Children receive homework help, tutoring, a nutritious snack, and physical activity during hours that are often unsupervised.
