YMCA

Our Before and Afterschool Program is a great program specific to school age children.  The space and programming is great for them.  It’s their own space to develop and grow-not being in a “baby” daycare.  We will have male staff which is also great for some of our boys-they play sports right alongside the children!  Registration is done a monthly basis we offer both full time and part time.  The fees include all non-school days and any early dismissal days that occur during the month.  You must send a snack and/or lunch with your child.    These fees are effective September 2015.

The YMCA Strong Kids Campaign provides financial support to financially disadvantaged children, youth and families in our

community so they too may participate in YMCA programs, services and memberships. If our fees seem unaffordable,

please feel free to fill out an opportunity fund application to see if you qualify for financial assistance through our

Strong Kids Campaign. At the YMCA everyone is welcome, despite their financial circumstances.

 

Time gaps before and after school can be empty and lonely for kids-and a challenge for busy parents. The YMCA of Moose Jaw now offers before and after school care for children aged 6 to 12 (grades 1 – 7).  To meet the needs and families within our community we are very pleased to offer this program in your school.  Our Before and After School Program offers a healthy solution for families requiring care for their school aged children.   Kids not only get the opportunity to be active, have fun and develop confidence in a safe and caring environment, but parents also get the peace of mind that their children are active and learning while spending time with friends.

 

Time spent being physically active and learning healthy behaviours is more important now than ever before. In fact, this is the first generation of children and youth in modern history to inherit a lower life expectancy than their parents. That’s why the YMCA Before & After School Program is great! The Before and Afterschool program will continue to give the opportunity for children to grow while learning the six core values of the YMCA – Caring, Honesty, Respect, Trust, Inclusiveness and Responsibility. Time spent being physically active and learning healthy behaviours is more important now than ever before. Children have the opportunity to socialize with their peers in a fun filled way through games (gross/fine motor), arts & crafts, and outdoor activities.

 

As part of the Before and Afterschool Program your child(ren) will:

.               Participate in a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity

.               Have time allotted for homework (homework is optional)

.               This program gives our older children the opportunity to receive quality care that they would in a childcare centre, but from a location that gives them more space and opportunity to be physically active and with peers their age.  A program and space specifically for school-aged children!

 

We provide:

.               A safe and caring environment for your children to “come home to” after school.

.               Transportation from select area schools to the YMCA.

.               Age-appropriate activities that focus on character development and team building.

.               Well-trained, qualified staff that will treat your children with respect and caring.

 

Our program offers a child-centered approach, responsive to the needs and interests of each child. Each day provides ample space for both quiet and active play, and an exciting supply of developmentally appropriate materials in a safe and exciting environment.  This Before and After School Program will operate out of the community classroom at St. Mary School.

 

We offer care on non-instructional school days and during school breaks. However, we are closed on weekends and statutory holidays.  Our hours are as follows:

 

School Days (Monday to Friday) 7:00 a.m. to school start and 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

 

All non-school days: 7:00 to 5:30 p.m.
