Exploration Station Afterschool Care at Heritage

Heritage Youth Development Center is the Y's licensed child care branch in Webb City. In this state-of-the-art facility, your child will learn, grow and thrive after school under the care our trained staff. 

At Exploration Station Afterschool Care, each afternoon includes a nutritious snack and time to build friendships with other students and positive relationships with staff. Children can also receive homework help from our trained afterschool counselors, so time at home can truly be family time.

Students will also get to explore new interests with groups like Science Club, Music/Drama Club, Reading Club and Sports Club. They will also get to spend time outside on the playground (as weather permits).

Exploration Station is available directly after school until 6pm for children in kindergarten through 12 years of age. Heritage buses will bring children to the Center from Webb City schools when school dismisses each day.
