The Five Star Kids Academy, at the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, will offer school-age care in a safe and reliable learning-focused environment. Our goal is to support both cognitive development and social-emotional growth with opportunities for enrichment and connection through steam-based learning activities, educational partnerships, virtual learning and homework support, daily physical activity, opportunities for creativity, engaging lessons that focus on character development, resilience, and more. Our program will operate full-day, school-age care until schools are operating Monday through Friday for face-to-face instruction.
We'll be here when you need us.
Frequent moves and deployments are one of the most impacting stressors of military families. Operation Little Learners offers a setting for children 18 months to 5 years old to make new friendships, build community, handle conflicts, develop children’s cognitive and social skills and encourage an overall healthier and resilient life. Parents and children work together and connect to a support network of other moms and dads experiencing the same military life challenges.
Operation Little Learners Virtual Sessions are happening now! Check out the OLL page for updates on monthly field trips and Craft & Conversation events.
Summer Camp is a childhood-tradition at the Armed Services YMCA. This year’s theme is WHO'S YOUR HERO? Specially-designed for school-age children, ages 5-12, weekly activities and field trips focus on the heroes in our lives who make the world a safer and brighter place. Not only will students engage in STEAM activities and explore a new type of hero each week through enriching opportunities, they will have a chance to make new friends, improve their social and communication skills and have LOTS OF FUN in a safe, nurturing environment.
YOU won’t want to miss out on this amazing summer experience for your child.
Operation Hero is a child-centered, enrichment program specially-designed to meet the unique needs of children from active-duty military families.

SPRING SESSIONS begin Monday, April 19!
