Prime Time

Kids want to exert energy, to discover who they are, what they can achieve and to be accepted. The Family YMCA’s PrimeTime After School care provides all of this in a safe, well-supervised environment. Kids participate in a variety of skill-building games, crafts, outdoor activities, homework time and curriculums which reinforce character development, reading, science and math. Prime Time After School has locations in 16 Richmond and McDuffie County schools, as well as six bus-in program sites.  This includes busing to the Aiken County Family YMCA from Graniteville and Byrd Elementary Schools.

For registration and payment, parents may visit the Augusta South Family YMCA (2215 Tobacco Road, Augusta) or the Family YMCA’s Team Headquarters (1058 Claussen Road, Augusta).  For additional information about Prime Time programs call 706.922.9656.
