At the Y, we are committed to helping the community during this crisis.
Early Education Center and Spring Training Camp (Y's Kids Full Days) are open and available to serve only health care workers and staff that are considered to be essential to the community, as mandated by the State of Kansas. For more information by KDHE visit here.
We will be setting up activity groups of no more than 15 children with two staff per group. We can accommodate 4 groups at this time (60 children) in each program. They will have designated classroom space. We will be doing most of our activities in these spaces with scheduled times either outdoors or in the gym.
Each child/parent will be screened upon checking in at the front door. The screening will include how the child is feeling, having their temperature taken, and asking about family travel over the past few weeks utilizing the State of Kansas most up to date travel restrictions. Please remember that if your child is sick, we are unable to welcome them into the program. If members of your household are in quarantine and your child has had contact with them even before symptoms started, they may not be allowed to attend.

Y's Kids Out of School Program
We have created an opportunity to provide all daycare for your elementary age child(ren) ages 5-12. As per the communication we have received from local and state officials, licensed programs are approved to operate within our existing guidelines in order to assist working families.
We are planning on helping your child through this educational gap. Activities will include reading, math, and science in an effort to help keep them educationally engaged while you work. We will be finding creative ways to help your child learn while still having fun.
Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack will be provided on days that children are not in school
A snack will be provided when children arrive after school.
Please understand this our program availability is subject to change if the regulations for licensed childcare centers change at any point. As you know, recommendations are changing on a daily (if not more recent). Our staff is working very hard this week to do deep cleaning and sanitizing to help provide a clean environment.
