Out of School Time (OST)


The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From Kindergarten to High School Graduation, the Y provides all youth with all they need to thrive.

September – June (grades K-8) The Newport County YMCA offers Out of School Time (OST) programming for children in K-8th grade. Children enjoy high-quality, interest-based daily experiences focused on exploration and enrichment. Participation in out of school programming contributes to increased self-esteem and academic achievement. It also fosters feelings of belonging and connection to others. Most importantly, children develop confidence and competency as they discover hidden talents. We give children the tools they need to grow into caring, productive community members. Our curriculum consists of Academics, STEM, Creative Arts, Physical Fitness, and Character Education. In collaboration with schools and families, our highly trained staff balances adult-led activities with unstructured time for exploration and discovery. Our programs are DCYF licensed and BrightStars rated.
