The YMCA’s School Age Child Care Program provides a safe, comfortable environment for children from kindergarten through fourth grade to acquire life and social skills and learn the Y’s character values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Our program includes healthy snacks and help with homework, plus physical and outdoor activities with our caring staff. While your child is in our care, have him or her take advantage of one of the many after school leagues or classes! For an additional fee, children may be registered for swimming, dance, gymnastics, and martial arts classes. The Child Care Staff will escort your child to and from YMCA classes between 4:15-5:45 p.m.
Tuition choices include two, three, four or five days per week. Our School Age Child Care Program provides daily transportation from local Ann Arbor Public Schools. Bus pickup locations for the 2015-2016 school year are Ann Arbor Open, Bach, Eberwhite, Haisley, Lakewood, and Wines. Drop offs in the School Age Program are also available, beginning at 3:00 p.m.
