Since 1985, the Tri-Town YMCA has been offering Y’s Kids Programs, a safe before and after school alternative, for children to attend, while their parents are at work or continuing their education. 

In 2020, Tri-Town YMCA is responding to local community needs by offering flexible options for families in it’s Remote Enrichment At District 45 (R.E.A.D.) program for children enrolled in Kindergarten through 8th Grade. At this time, there are no residency requirements to participate in this program. Priority will be given to School District 45 students, but it is open to students residing in and out of School District 45 Villa Park.

Please note that R.E.A.D. is a school-age program that does follow the standards set forth by DCFS and is considered license-exempt. Our teacher-to-student ratio is 1:10.
