Children & Youth Services


Children and Youth Services is a before and after school program for school age children that includes fun individual and group activities, free time, and meaningful learning experiences in a safe and creative atmosphere encouraging personal growth and social interaction.

The program is committed to providing quality care that facilitates the social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of children, stressing the importance of individuality, diversity, unity, choice and autonomy.

All West Haven public elementary and intermediate school students are eligible to attend.

Before and After School Child Care

Before and after school child care is provided at six school sites:, Mackrille, Molloy, Pagels, Savin Rock, Seth Haley, and Washington and is offered between 7am and school start, and school dismissal to 5:30pm during school days and certain school holidays. Students from Carrigan and Forest go to the Molloy site for before and after school child care.

The program provides a variety of interactive activities including Literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) projects that support the school's curriculum. We offer fun, hands-on experimental learning activities that focus on the development of the whole child including social emotional, physical and intellectual development.
