Childcare Services

School-Age Childcare

YW Kidslink provides before and after school care for children at select elementary schools in the greater Hartford area. At the center of our programs is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Your child will learn to make friends and to be a good friend, enjoy free time to play and have some quiet time to do homework. They will also participate in activities that explore other cultures, introduce them to leaders past and current who have worked for peace and equality, and challenge them to learn team work and respect as they work and play with their friends. Our teachers are chosen because of their interest in helping children to gain life skills, learn to make friends and to be a good friend, enjoy free time to play and have some quiet time to do homework.

We are conveniently located in the following schools:

Bolton
  • Bolton Center School
West Hartford 
  • Bugbee
  • Duffy
  • Webster Hill
  • Wolcott
Rocky Hill 
  • Stevens
  • West Hill
