After School is the WYC’s flagship program. Every school day at 3pm between 80 and 115 children join us for two and a half hours of activities, which include indoor and outdoor gross motor play, daily art classes, and homework help from one of our Williams College or Mount Greylock students.
We have created a handbook that not only meets the requirements of our program licensor (the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care) but also incorporates our mission and our values.
We encourage you to read the 2021-2022 edition of the handbook, which can be found here.

After School Program
The second session of the After School Program begins on Tuesday, January 18. A reminder to send your child with a snack, water bottle, and outdoor gear. Please put your child’s name in all clothing to help us keep track of their things! Our pick-up procedure remains the same; please call the office when you arrive and we will send your child out the front door. Our number is 413-458-5925.
Before School Program
Did you know we operate a Before School Program every weekday morning? From 7 to 8:30am, we’re open for games, gym time, quiet activities, and homework help, before walking over to the elementary school. The cost is $10 per morning or $200 per month. Register here.
Snow Days Procedures
When there is a Williamstown Elementary School snow day, then the WYC will open as soon as it is safely possible, which is usually around 9am. Currently, we are only open for kids enrolled in our After School Program. The cost is $10 per child for the entire day. Please pack lunch, a snack, and weather-appropriate outerwear.
When there are weather delays, there will be NO BEFORE SCHOOL PROGRAM. In those cases, the After School Program will run at its usual time.
The safety of our members and staff is our first priority. The WYC will NOT open during declared snow emergencies or any other situation with travel restrictions. Please check your email and/or our Facebook page for updates before leaving the house.
