School Age Child Care

Before & After School Programs

Here at the Community YMCA we have been providing high quality, affordable care to our local community for over 20 years. Why worry about what your child is doing while you are at work when you can get them into the action with the Before and After School Care Program! Our programs enable children to realize their potential in a place where fun & learning go hand in hand. With exciting and engaging activities we encourage our values of caring, honesty, respect and social responsibility. We provide a safe and nurturing space for children, as well as reassurance and flexibility to working parents. You can rest assured that your child is surrounded by caring, trained staff who provide an exciting array of daily activities.

Each site is considered a licensed SACC center by the NYS Office of Children & Family Services. Your child’s file is subject to random inspection at any point in the school year. For this reason, registration packets must be complete before fully enrolling your child.

Service Areas 

Our programs run ON-SITE in local school districts to meet the needs of the children enrolled in those buildings. If you do not see your district listed, please contact Bonnie Fogarty to get a program in your school!

Vacation Days

The YMCA offers a vacation day program during certain school breaks. The program operates from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and is open to all with priority given to children registered in our before school or after school program. Advance registration is required and there is an additional fee for this service. Vacation days are not guaranteed for all school breaks. 

Throughout the school year, there may be additional care days offered based on individual district schedules. We reserve the right to cancel vacation camps due to low enrollment.

 

Early Dismissal

On scheduled half days, the program will open at dismissal, at no extra charge, to accommodate all kids registered for that after school program.  If your child is not registered for that day, there will be a $50 extra day fee, if space is available. We will only open for the early dismissal if the ENTIRE school is dismissed early. There are no refunds for emergency early dismissal due to weather or other emergencies.

 

School Delays & Closings

Detailed information will be available on our Facebook page and WHUD Storm Center.

 

School Closing: In the event that the school is closed for inclement weather or emergencies- all YMCA programs will be closed.

 

Delayed Opening: In the event that the school has a delayed opening, the Before School program will be closed. The After School program will operate according to schedule.

 

Cancellation of After School Activities: In the event that the school district has cancelled after school activities, we reserve the right to close program, as well.

*If weather conditions become hazardous during after school program hours we reserve the right to close early. In this situation, you must make arrangements to pick your child up at the modified time.
