Summit YMCA School Age Aftercare

 

 

After School Care at the Y is designed to meet the needs of working parents in providing a safe, supervised and stimulating place for their children in Kindergarten through Grade 5 to be cared for after school. Kindergarten care is for children enrolled in Full Day Kindergarten or afternoon sessions only. The After School Program includes snacks, quiet time for homework, games, arts and crafts. 

Due to new safety measures and limitations, some of our offerings for the 2020-2021 school year have changed. Rest assured, keeping your child safe remains our #1 priority.

• The After Care program will be offered daily, Monday through Friday, 12:30 PM to 5:00 PM, on days public school is in session and The Learning Circle YMCA is open.

• Your child will be bussed from local Summit Public Schools to the Summit YMCA upon school dismissal.

• In discussion with the Acting Superintendent of Schools for the Summit Public School District, Mr. Gardella, The Learning Circle YMCA committed to assist your children in their mandatory remote learning process each day for 1-1/2 hrs., and we will continue to ensure they attend to their homework. We were informed by Mr. Gardella that all children will be given a laptop and ear plugs by the public school district for this purpose.

• Children will come with their own lunch and snack every day – it is our understanding that the Summit Public School District is providing “to go” style breakfast and lunch to students, but please speak with your public school for confirmation of this.

• Strict adherence to wearing masks on busses for students and staff; refusal or lack of cooperation in wearing a mask will result in a student being dis-enrolled for bussing – parent will have to drop child off at Y at 1:00pm (no rate reduction).

• Staff will always wear masks and it is expected that children wear masks as much as is possible; we will discuss cases individually with parents as needed.

• All of these provisions will remain in effect provided there are no further restrictions placed upon the program by our licensing agency, The Department of Children and Families (DCF) above the current restrictions on practice, capacity and group size.

• We will adhere to strict cleaning practices as guided by DCF and the CDC, and please know that we have been running the early childhood programs since June 15th, with significant practice in managing health and safety standards.
