About School Age Child Care

Parent Information

REGISTRATION

Before your child may attend YMCA School Age Child Care, you must register your child online and provide:

  • A one-time, non-refundable and non-transferable, $35 registration fee for each child enrolled in the program (separate from monthly tuition);
  • A copy of current immunization history and a physical exam dated within the last two years;
  • A telephone number where a parent or guardian may be reached during program hours; and
  • Two additional emergency contacts who are authorized to pick up your child(ren) in case of an emergency - if you are unavailable.

ENROLLMENT & ATTENDANCE

Enrollment options are flexible to meet a variety of family needs. Children can be enrolled before or after school - or both. And, children can attend from one to five days a week depending on their situation. Rates reflect this flexibility.

New Enrollment
Children may start attending the program three business days after registration is submitted. This allows the YMCA to maintain the proper staff-to-child ratio and provide the site staff with all required paperwork for state child care licensing.

Enrollment Changes & Withdrawal
Any enrollment change (i.e., change of days) or withdrawal must be made in writing. There is a $10 fee for enrollment changes. A two-week written notice is required for withdrawal from the program and tuition must be paid during those two weeks. Submit changes or withdrawal notice, including the effective date, to the site director.

Scheduled Early Release & Delayed Opening Days
If your child is regularly enrolled during scheduled early release and delayed opening days, no additional fees will be charged.

PAYMENT

Late Payments and Unpaid Balances
Children with outstanding balances will not be allowed to attend. Unpaid balances will incur a $20 late fee after the first of each month. Returned checks will incur a $25 charge payable by cashier’s check or money order. All future payments must be made with a credit card, money order or cashier's check.
 
Financial Assistance
Southern District YMCA strives to ensure that all children who need before and after school care receive it regardless of the ability to pay. To be considered for financial assistance, please complete and submit the application form. 

ACCOMMODATIONS & SPECIAL NEEDS

Participants are treated as individuals with respect shown for different tastes, preferences, range of behavior patterns and abilities. However, we require that the safety and security of everyone is maintained. If a one-on-one aide is assigned to a child during the school year, regardless of the aide’s function, an aide is required to accompany the child during their YMCA program. Aides are not provided by Southern District YMCA.

The YMCA reserves the right to dismiss a child from a program whose special needs we are unable to meet or whose conduct is not in the best interest of the YMCA and the other participants. Please contact us if you have questions regarding the accommodations and special needs of your child.

BEHAVIOR

We model by the four core values of the YMCA: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. If a student can’t meet the expectations of our programs, parents will be notified and corrective plan will be set. If the students’s behavior continues violate YMCA policies, the student will be dismissed from the program. If violent or threatening behavior occurs or damage to the facility and/or other property is caused, the student may be dismissed from the program (i.e., hitting, kicking, threatening, and damaging of property). Refunds will not be granted if a student is dismissed from a program.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

Southern District YMCA has a plan in place to respond quickly and notify you in an emergency. In the event of an emergency, we will contact you if your child is directly affected. Parents can also receive up-to-date information on our website, Twitter (@sdymca) or Facebook (Southern District YMCA).
