Part-Time Care Information

Part-time children can only attend on the days they are registered for. A payment for the days registered for is required even if the child does not attend that many days. Care cannot be switched in the middle of the month if already attending Y’s Kids. Full time slots will be given first priority. If we are at capacity and a full-time child would like to enroll, the last enrolled part-time child will have the option to go to full time care or have a two week notice to find alternative care so the new full-time child can have that spot

Full Days Information

  • On Full Days at the Y, all children need to bring a lunch with a drink. Please avoid foods that need refrigeration or are low in nutritional value, as well as those that have excess sugar and fat.
  • Full Days are 7:30 am—6:00 pm on days in which school is not in session.
  • You must register for full days.
  • Parents will be notified in advance of field trips and a field trip form should be signed and returned by parents before the child can participate.
  • If child is registered and does not attend, and does not give a minimum of 24 hours notice, payment is still required and no refund will be given as limited spaces are available.

Children do not have to participate in Y's Kids Club afterschool to participate in Full Days.

No one is turned away for inability to pay. Scholarships for Y's Kids Club are available. DCF is also accepted.
