YWCA Northern New Jersey has provided School Age Child Care (SACC) for families in Northern New Jersey for over 40 years.
Our Philosophy: To provide high quality, deliberately affordable school-age programs in Bergen County. We offer many registration options to fully support working families. We believe that a quality Before & After School program should provide enriching experiences which facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth AND meet the needs of the entire family.
Before Care: Designed to promote youth development by providing a variety of activities like arts and crafts, games and fitness before school begins. Hours: 7 am – start of school
After Care: Offers children the chance to engage in different activities beyond what they’ve experience during school. Hours: School dismissal – 7 pm
