Child Care Staff

Krysten Conners is the Youth Director for the Y's Time Program. She administers all Before/After school programs, working closely with their staff, school administrators, parents and children. All staff are screened for caring, friendly and nurturing personalities. They must meet specific qualifications and Y standards in order to work with our kids.


No Transportation as this time- further updates throughout the school year.
