Add On Services

The following are Add On Services that YMCA School Aged Child Care offers:

Early Release Fee
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 Option

Calamity Days Out-Of-School: $20 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 Week Rate: Up to $175 Per Week
(Break Weeks refer to full weeks out of school. Ex: Winter Break, Spring Break, etc.)

Daily Rate: $35 Per Day
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.

Applying for Ohio Public Funds

The YMCA accepts publicly funded child care through the State of Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) helps parent(s) who are working or in school pay for child care through the Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) program. 

You may be required to pay for part of your child care in the form of a copayment as determined by ODJFS. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and family size.

Please visit the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services website for more information or to apply for Child Care Assistance in your county.

Financial Assistance

The YMCA of Greater Dayton is a charitable, not-for-profit, health and human services organization committed to helping people reach their full potential in spirit, mind and body.

Through generous donations from members and your community, the YMCA is proud to offer Our Extra Hands Program. This provides financial assistance to those in need.

Follow the following steps to apply for our Child Care Scholarships:
Step 1:  Apply for PFCC (If you are denied, you can proceed with the YMCA Extra Hands Application. You will need to provide a copy of your denial letter from your county.) If you are approved for PFCC, a YMCA Scholarship would not be applicable.

Step 3: Provide us with 1 Month of Pay Stubs for all adults in your household.
