Kindergarten Wrap Program

 


Our kindergarten childcare programs enrich your child's day with fun, educational and creative activities dedicated to fostering your child's total growth and well-being like STEM, arts and crafts, cooking, computer time, theme days, sports and games, and swimming in our outdoor pool (during the summer season) and indoors at the Summit YMCA. 

Based on current public school plans for the 2022-2023 school year, we are providing the following program options:

KINDERGARTEN WRAP PROGRAM

NEW PROVIDENCE

The Kindergarten Wrap Program (K-Wrap) is designed for New Providence students enrolled in half-day Kindergarten at Allen W. Roberts School and Salt Brook School. Our K-Wrap program provides an extension of the public school day by focusing on the NJ Dept. of Education’s Student Learning Standards. Learning will focus on English Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, Computer Science and Design Thinking, World Languages, Physical Education and Health and Career Readiness, Life Literacies and Key Skills. Our curriculum is enriched with art, music, cooking, dramatic play and swim lessons.

Students spend half of their school day at the Berkeley Heights YMCA either mornings from 8:00 AM to school start time for those enrolled in the PM session of public school or afternoons from 11:50 AM to 3:30 PM for those enrolled in the AM session of public school.

The Full Day K-Wrap option provides care beginning at 7:00 AM through to 6:00 PM for a full day of care; Before Care, K-wrap and Aftercare. Before Care is held at Salt Brook and AWR for those enrolled in the AM public school Kindergarten session with bussing to K-Wrap and Aftercare at the Berkeley Heights YMCA. Before Care and K-Wrap for children in the PM session of public school Kindergarten will take place at the Berkeley Heights YMCA. After Care options for Allen W. Roberts students include OASIS at AWR or Onsite at the Berkeley Heights YMCA. After Care options for Salt Brook students include OASIS at Salt Brook or Onsite at the Summit YMCA. Additional extended care to 6:30 PM is also available.

The Kindergarten Wrap Program is available only when school is in session. On school holidays and vacation days, the Y will remain open for holiday care which is offered for an additional fee. Holidays are included in the Full Day option.
