Before- and After-School Elementary Programs

A variety of educational opportunities are offered before and after school in Olathe's elementary schools. These include:

Extended Care for Kindergarten 

Before- or after-kindergarten care is provided at all elementary schools. To enroll in YMCA care, call (913) 345-9622.

Extended Learning

Most of our schools offer opportunities for students to participate in extended learning beyond the regular school day. Before- and after-school academic sessions provide more time for students to learn critical reading and math skills. Teachers work directly with identified students in a small-group setting. Sessions are designed to motivated students and help them succeed with more confidence during the school day. Exciting learning clubs are also part of the Extended Learning Program. Students can participate in a clubs on a variety of interesting topics that extend the curriculum and excite them through hands-on learning, exploration of potential hobbies, and involvement in fitness and sports activities.


YMCA also offers coverage on days when students are not in school and summer programming. Please call the YMCA at (913) 345-9622 to verify participation.
