Clayton Youth Enrichment

We're thrilled to introduce the Clayton Child Development Center-Near Southside!


Since our nonprofit agency was founded at Lily B. Clayton Elementary in 1975, Clayton has been a reliable source for quality after-school, early childhood, and summer day camp programs. Thousands of families each year rely on Clayton programs to keep their children safe, engaged, and happy after school, during the workday, and when school is out.


We believe in the power of joyful learning experiences. Our programs are not just about play – they're designed to equip children with the essential skills they will need for a successful journey ahead. From teamwork and effective communication to decision-making and self-management, our hands-on activities foster holistic development and prepare kids to live great lives.
