Pryme Tyme is that special time before school and at the end of school for children whose parents are at work. The YMCA can make this a great time to grow, to play and to be with friends. Pryme Tyme programs are not just supervised playgrounds. We strive to maintain a ratio that provides plenty of individual attention as well as small group activity.
Pryme Tyme is held at the school your child attends. Hours for Chatham County are from 7:00 a.m. until the start of school and the end of school until 6:00 p.m. Hours for Effingham County are the end of school until 6:30 p.m.

As children arrive in the mornings they can choose from a variety of quiet activities, such as reading and board games, as well as time to work on homework. Also, if you choose, your child can attend the breakfast program at the school.
Children enjoy a snack and drink in the afternoons.
When children arrive after a long day of school they can choose from a variety of supervised activities. Active games, sports and board games, and arts and crafts will be awaiting each child on arrival. Small group activities allow time for discussion, sharing and finding out about ourselves and others.
Because Pryme Tyme offers a variety of activities, we offer children 30 minutes of quiet time to work on their studies. If they have a specific question regarding their homework, our staff will try to assist them. However, please remember that Pryme Tyme is not able to provide tutoring or individual attention.
Pryme Tyme is held at participating elementary schools in Chatham and Effingham County. Find your Pryme Tyme location here.
