Club Kid, our before and after school child care program, currently runs on site at numerous elementary schools in Orange County. In most districts, we provide both before and after school care for children in grades K-5. The Monroe Woodbury school district offers after school programs for K-8. In some schools, we offer only after school care. Each Club Kid program follows their school district’s calendar. For no additional charge, we provide this program on half days for both AM and PM participants. All of our Club Kid programs are registered and licensed by the New York State Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS).
Our goal is to provide safe, fun, and supervised care for school-age children before and after school. We strive to provide an exciting and stimulating environment, while recognizing children's needs for quiet, individual activity. We offer a program where children can make choices that best suit their needs and interests. In our daily program, we strive to offer opportunities for:
* Personal Growth
* Improving Social Skills
* Developing Leadership Skills
* Appreciating Diversity
* Having FUN!
Incorporating YMCA Core Values of: CARING, RESPECT, HONESTY, and RESPONSIBILITY
Children enrolled in the AM Club Kid program will have a variety of opportunities to start the day right. Activities such as arts and crafts, games, and quiet time for last-minute school projects are available. In the PM Club Kid program, we offer a supervised program that is less structured, allowing children to choose their daily schedule. Snack, homework time, arts and crafts, outside play, gym time, and special events create a diverse afternoon of activities.
All of our staff fit the criteria set forth by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. We pride ourselves on providing our staff with extensive training, which we continuously update. Our staff must be fingerprinted, have previous childcare experience, and be cleared by the N.Y. State Central Clearance.
We strive to provide staff that are trained, nurturing professionals who are willing to take the time to get to know each participant and their family.
You may register at any time, space permitting. When registering your child, please take note that there is a 3 school day waiting period before your child can start the program. A non-refundable registration fee is required to hold placement and monthly payments are due by the 1st of the month.
CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS
All changes and cancellations require a 15 day notice prior to the 1st of the month draft date in order to cancel or change that draft. All changes and cancellations are subject to a $10 fee which can be paid at the time of the adjustment or on the next draft.
