Join us for the 2019-2020 school year and allow your child to learn, grow, and thrive at the Y, while creating lasting friendships and developing lifelong skills! We offer monthly and part-time (2-3 days a week) program offerings for children in grades Pre-K-6th. Transportation from schools to designated site location is provided daily by the YMCA; Ridgeway not included. Our after school care program strives to create a safe and welcoming environment for children and promote the YMCA core values through lessons focused around youth development, healthy living, and social-emotional learning. All children participate in daily activities based on STEM, language arts, real-world skills, community service, arts and crafts and team building. In addition, we offer reading and homework help, daily outdoor and gym time, Friday free swim, playtime, and a healthy snack.

Monthly After School Care

Children registered in the monthly program will be enrolled for the entire 2019-2020 school year. Payment will be processed the 1st of each month or made in two payments on the first and fifteenth of each month. Rates are prorated based on days of care. Cancellations must be made up to two weeks in advance for refunds. A one-time registration fee of $25 per child is due at the time of enrollment, with a maximum charge of $50.00 per family. If registering before Aug. 19, the registration fee is waived!


Part Time After School Care

Part Time participants register for a week at a time and pay at the time of registration. Families choose two or three days of care for the following week. Cancellations must be made by the Thursday before the week of care. No refunds are given after Thursday.

*New Policy and Program Change*

All After School Care Monthly Participants will be required to have a payment method on file within their account prior to September 1st, or the 1st of the beginning month of childcare. Payment plan forms will be required for all ASC Monthly Participants and will designate a payment schedule of either payments made on the first of each month or twice a month on the 1st and 15th. If a payment is returned or funds are unavailable, a notice will go out providing parents or guardians 7 days from original payment date to resubmit payment. If payment is not made within 7 days, the child/children will be removed from the program until payment is received. 
We will only be providing part-time and monthly after school care during the 2019-2020 school year. No daily care will be provided, although parents can utilize the ASC part-time program for childcare between 2-3 days of care a week. Payment is due at time of registration, regardless of how far in advance you register your child.
Thank you for choosing us for your after school care needs! We thoroughly enjoy creating a safe, fun space for your children! 

All children enrolled in After School Care will be a part of the Social Emotional Learning Program.  This includes tailored activities each week and mentoring to help develop skills and strategies to build more effective relationships with peers and adults as well as practice expressing feelings in a positive way.
