Signups for YMCA Before and After School Childcare Programs Underway at Local YMCA Branches
YMCA branches serving the Conejo Valley, Simi Valley and Moorpark are registering students in kindergarten through fifth grade for before and after school childcare programs for the coming 2016-17 school year.
The Triunfo YMCA offers childcare at Yerba Buena, Sumac and Willow elementary schools in Agoura Hills and White Oak Elementary in Westlake Village. A childcare program specially designed for kindergarteners is available at Yerba Buena.
The Conejo Valley YMCA is providing childcare at Peach Hill Academy and Mountain Meadows Elementary in Moorpark and M.A.T.E.S. Charter School in Thousand Oaks.
Simi Valley Family YMCA offers childcare at Arroyo, Atherwood, Berylwood, Big Springs, Hollow Hills, Katherine, Santa Susana, Sycamore and White Oak elementary schools.
"The YMCA's focus is always to provide high quality, values-based programs that are affordable and friendly," says Chrissy Withers, Triunfo Y's lead program director. "Our structured care includes time for homework, outdoor play and opportunities to acquire new skills--all in a healthy, positive environment."
Childcare is available on all school days, pupil-free days and minimum days. Camp programs are held during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks and any school furlough days. Children can attend full time or part time with flexible time slots available. Transportation will be provided to the YMCA childcare sites from other surrounding schools if enough kids from each school participate.
