At the Y, we see every child who comes through our doors as the leaders of tomorrow. We provide a safe, healthy and fun place for your child afterschool and holidays. Beginning this fall we will be working in our raised garden as a project for our afterschool participants! They can learn how food is grown and be able to have some of their snacks from the garden! This garden is our continuing effort to teach and follow the HEPA guidelines of healthy eating and physical activity.

The YMCA is willing to work with anyone who has financial need. Please submit a scholarship application along with the required paperwork in order to be considered for assistance.
If your payment is more than two weeks late, your child will not be picked up after school until payment is made.
All children must be picked up by 6:00 p.m. and signed out by parents or pre-arranged designated person. There will be a $10.00 late fee for any child left after 6:00pm.
Be sure your child is familiar with personal items and can identify them in the event of loss. LABEL EVERYTHING including swim suits, towels, etc. All clothing should be appropriate for outdoor play.
Please label your child’s book bag with his or her name.
Healthy snacks and drink will be provided.
Your child is given the a specific amount of time for homework assignments. We cannot guarantee that all homework will be completed during afterschool. Our schedule consits of other activities that foster healthy lifestyles. If your child has a need for extra help with homework in a specific area please inform our staff so that we can provide assistance.
The lost and found should be checked weekly. On Tuesday of each week, the items that have not been picked up out of the lost and found will be donated to a local charity.
Please do not send your child if he/she is ill. We are concerned for the health and welfare of each child, therefore we require sick children to be picked up as soon as possible in the event they become ill. Any major or life threatening injury or accident that may occur during scheduled hours will be handled in the following manner:
911 will be called immediately.
Parent/Guardian will be called.
Based upon the professional decision of the EMT unit, the child may be transported to the closest medical facility for immediate care, or the EMT may advise the parent/guardian or staff as to how to treat or care for the child.
No child, for any reason, will be transported in a staff member’s car without a written statement from the parents and approval by the Child Care Coordinator.
It is our goal to provide a healthy, safe and secure environment for all participants. The YMCA teaches the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Children who attend the program are expected to follow the behavior guidelines and to interact appropriately in a group setting.
When a child does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following steps:
The following behaviors are not acceptable and may result in the immediate suspension of a child for the remainder of the current day and the next day.
If any of these behaviors persist, staff may suspend the child a second time before expulsion.
If your child will not be riding the bus on any given day, please notify the YMCA by 12noon so the bus driver will not be waiting on your child. .
Your input is extremely important to us at the YMCA. We expect all parents/guardians to talk with the staff members about any problem the child is having that we can help with. In order for us to serve you better, we need to know what is going on.
If at anytime you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.
Whenever your child is riding in a YMCA vehicle, the following guidelines should be followed at all times:
