Before/After School Care (SAC / Live Yer's)

Grades Kindergarten though 5th:
SAC = Grades K - 2nd
Live Yer's (S.T.E.A.M.) = 3rd to 5th grade (up to age 10)

Effective 9/1/2016 - Children under the age of 10 are not permitted in the Y without the supervision of an adult.

Worried about who’s watching your kids? The YMCA understands and has created two programs in which kids can relax in a trusting atmosphere where they are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendships and grow in confidence independence, and respect for themselves and others:

SAC - This is the childcare program for any child enrolled in Kindergarten through grade 2.
Non-refundable registration fee of $40
required for enrollment.

* SAC offers snacks, activities, STEM, tutoring help, physical fitness and more by state certified and trained YMCA employees
* After-school SAC is K through 2nd grade
* Before school SAC is K through 5th grade
* Must be registered through Childcare Department
* Will be provided snack/drink daily after school
* A runner will take children to/from Y programs which children are registered for
* Will run 2-hour delays (there will be NO bus to take children to school - parents must provide own transportation.) If 2-hour delay turns into a No School Day, participants will transition over to the Live Yer's program.
* Any child K through 9 years and under NEEDS to be registered for SAC/Live Yer's - they will not be allowed to come to the YMCA alone.
* If a child (K-2nd grade) is registered for a Y program, they must either be enrolled in SAC or a parent/guardian/responsible adult will need to bring them into the Y and take them to their program.
* SAC will not run on No School Days - if needed, children will need to register for Live Yer's.
* The Warren County YMCA Childcare is a State Licensed Childcare Facility and a Keystone Stars participant.

Live Yer's S.T.E.A.M. - This is the afterschool transition program for children in Grades 3, 4 5 (age 9 is required, age 10 has option). This program was designed to assist after-school kids not enrolled in SAC and needing adult supervision due to the YMCA age policy.

* Live Yer's is an after-school care program for those in 3rd through 5th grade (age 9 is required, age 10 has option). This program will provide Science, Technology, Environment, Arts and Math (STEAM). Your child will engage in many activities with staff supervising children in the Activity Room, Program Room 4, Gymnasiums and Outdoor Play Areas. Children will report directly to Program Room #4. Those enrolled will have the opportunity to participate in Y programs such as swimming lessons, gymnastics, Kids Be Fit, etc. A "runner" will take them to the program and return them to STEAM if needed.
* A runner will take children to/from Y programs which children are registered for.
* All children MUST be registered for Live Yer's program to be signed in & then signed out NO LATER than 5:30 pm
