School Age Care

SCHOOL AGE CARE
YMCA OF SPRINGFIELD

Chatham, Riverton, Rochester, Williamsville-Sherman

2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR

Our before and after school programs are modeled after the Food, Fun and Afterschool program designed by the Harvard School of Public Health Prevention Research Center and the YMCA of the USA. Our program was piloted in YMCA afterschool sites throughout the country with the goal of increasing physical activity and healthy eating habits in those children in our programs. The philosophy of the YMCA’s School Age Care Program is to promote learning through play and recreation.

We believe every child should have the opportunity to develop their individual abilities at their own pace and in the spirit of self-worthiness.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

YMCA Strong Kids Scholarship funds are available for School Age Care as well as financial
assistance through third-party providers such as Community Connection Point (CCP).

Financial aid applications will only be accepted for review once BOTH of the following conditions are met:

  1. Youth program participant must have a current and active financial aid/scholarship youth membership. YMCA membership must be maintained for the duration of the youth’s participation in program. If the youth’s membership expires, you will be responsible for the full rate of program fees. Information on applying for financial aid/scholarship membership is available at the front desk of both branches, online at http://springfieldymca.org/financial-assistance/, or by contacting Lesley Barker (Downtown) 217 544 9846 ext. 114, or Bianca Hueckstaedt (Kerasotes) 217 679 1625 ext 174.
  2. Parent/guardian must first apply for assistance from Community Connection Point (CCP) and submit approval/denial letter. CCP is a third-party organization that assists families in paying for child care services. Applications are available in person from the local CCP office as well as online. The local CCP office is located at 901 South Spring Street, Suite B, Springfield, IL 62704, 217 525 2805, http://ccpoint.org. The YMCA does not provide applications for CCP assistance. Financial assistance from the YMCA is dependent on approval or denial from CCP and will not be considered until after CCP has determined eligibility.
