Before and After School Care FAQ’s
Do you have questions about Before and After School Care? We have answers. We are here to help you find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Q. Can we sign up any time throughout the school year?
A. You can sign up any time during the school year. Please note that your child may be put on a waiting list if the staff to child ratio is below regulations.
Q. Do I have to have a set schedule or can it change?
A. It’s best to have a set schedule. If your work changes and you need to change your schedule, please contact the Y and give us a week to accommodate your request. The reason we request this is for the safety of your child.
Q. What do I do if my child is registered but not going to the After School Program?
A. If your child is not going to go to the after school program, please email the director so we can notify the after school program so they don’t look for your child.
Q. Do you do homework with my child?
A. We do give homework time and help as much as we can. We can not do one-on-one with your child. We try to ensure they get the homework done but please understand we can not make them do it.
Q. What happens when school is closed?
A. Your handbook tells you what days we offer service and where when school is closed. We open from 7 am until 6 pm when a program is offered. This is on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration forms are available at the schools to be filled out and returned to the Y.
Financial Assistance available. We strive to serve everyone in the community, regardless of their individual economic circumstances. Financial assistance applications are available at all of our membership offices and must be submitted with registration forms. The application process is confidential and requires proof of financial need. View more information here.
We are proud to be be an Equal Opportunity Child Care Provider.
