Child Care + Remote Learning = Great Futures

Amidst a global pandemic, social injustice unrest, and unfolding economic crisis, the vast majority of public schools in Western MA have now adopted remote learning platforms. Keeping young people on track academically now means clearing major hurdles unlike ever before – logging on to the virtual classroom and having proper food and nutrition each day.

Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke is doing whatever it takes to provide support services for our youth. As more students than ever face academic challenges and a myriad of related issues, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke has launched full-day child care and learning pod program where a designated group of kids can safely access computers and receive support from Club staff, all while learning and playing at a distance from each other. Club staff provide social, emotional, and learning support throughout the virtual school day and transition to traditional Boys & Girls Club afterschool programming and enrichment activities in the afternoon.

Program hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and breakfast, as well as lunch, is provided. Contact Ann Mann at or 413-534-7366 ext. 126 to place your child on the waitlist.

To help provide child care and remote learning support, the Club launched a new full-day program this fall. Youth can access computers and WiFi to connect to public schools, receive SEL support services, and transition to our traditional afterschool and enrichment activities at the end of the school day.
