The following are additional services that YMCA School Aged Child Care offers:
As a courtesy for parents enrolled in After Care, early release is included at no charge.
School delays up to 2 hours will be a courtesy for families already enrolled in morning care or the before and after care option. Should the school move from delay status to closed status, families should have alternative transportation and pick up options.
*See Calamity Care Options
Calamity Days & Professional Development Days: $40 Per Day
(Calamity Days are unplanned School District days - Ex: Snow, Emergency, etc.)
Calamity Care participation can kick in at the assigned location for those who have signed up. Parents may be requested to move their children to that location. Assigned location is communicated in parent orientation and registration and may have a slight delay as staff move from the school to the alternative location.
Break Weeks: $175 Per Week
(Break Weeks refer to full weeks out of school. Ex: Winter Break, Spring Break, etc.)
Daily Rate: $40 Per Day
This applies to situations where parents are signed up for Before Care ONLY or After Care ONLY, and when guardians select to attend 1-2 predetermined days of the week.
For Daily Rate registration, a minimum of 30 days written notice is required. We will anticipate weekly participation since this is not a drop-in service. Some families may use this option when available for planned School District All-Day-Outs, or families with rotating work schedules.
*Discounts are not available for daily rate fees.
