Where Care Meets Achievement

The YMCA offers programs to help your child succeed in the classroom. Whether you're a new parent looking to learn how to best prepare your young one for school, or looking for a fun, enriching place for your older child to spend time after school until you get off work, the YMCA has programs aimed at helping giving them the best chance at a bright future.

The hours children spend outside of the classroom are critical to their growth and development.  The Y is committed to providing children with a safe, enriching and fun environment during out-of-school time and emergency care, where we foster positive physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth.  We weave an emphasis on health and wellness into every program, to ensure that every child is learning healthy habits for a lifetime.


The Twin Rivers YMCA After School Program for 2020-2021 is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, or when in-school instruction resumes for Craven County Schools. Due to limited resources, After School will be held at the YMCA in New Bern. We will only be able to pick up at the following schools to have programming from 3-6pm Mon,Tue, Thu, and Fri:

  • Trent Park
  • Bangert
  • Ben D. Quinn

A separate registration is needed in order to participate in Full Day Out Care at the Y on Wednesdays each week. 
Like you, the Y has been navigating uncharted territory as we develop plans to provide flexible and affordable child care while expanding enrichment and providing extended learning opportunities for children. We know families are eager to make plans for the school year, and we are working diligently with our local schools and community partners to adapt and finalize options for your child’s out-of-school time. We will communicate our plans to our members as soon as they are available. Keep in mind, that plans are tentative based on our state guidance.
