AFTERSCHOOL

The AfterSchool Program is a safe place for children to play, learn, and grow when out of school. Our qualified and caring staff focus on nurturing the development of each child. We provide a place to have fun, make new friends, and become more active. 


The YMCA’s AfterSchool program serves children 4 - 11 years old.  Children create lasting memories as they engage in a variety of educational and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve.  The program will be held at the Schergens Center in Tell City.

AfterSchool helps build a healthy spirit, mind, and body in a fun setting environment. Children will receive a snack, homework time, participate in crafts, games, indoor/outdoor play, and other organized fun while demonstrating our five character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

These are the program areas that our AfterSchool staff will use as the framework for planning daily, weekly, and monthly activities:

  • Arts and Crafts 
  • Character Development 
  • Fitness Fun
  • Creative Expression 
  • Homework Time
  • Literacy 
  • Science

The Y provides a healthy snack after school. 

If your child has any allergies or requires a special diet, please note it on your registration form and we will make sure the staff is aware of it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

AFTERSCHOOL FAQ:

Q: What ages do you accept for AfterSchool?

We will be accepting 4 -11 year olds.

Q: How are the students divided into groups during AfterSchool?

Our program is structured as a large group setting, but we do our best to divide the students into smaller groups through out the structured time.

Q: What is the registration fee for the program?

For one child the registration fee is $30.00.  For a family the registration fee is $50.00.

Q: How does the Payment Contract work?

Our AfterSchool Program is a part-time and full-time program. Parents can enroll their student based on a 3 day attendance or 5 day attendance schedule. If your student will be attending AfterSchool 1 – 3 days a week, you will enroll your child in the 3 Day Contract and will be responsible for paying the weekly fee for that contract no matter how many days your child attends AfterSchool. If your child will be attending AfterSchool 4 – 5 days a week, you will enroll your child in the 5 Day Contract and will be responsible for paying the weekly fee for that contract no matter how many days your child attends AfterSchool.

Q: How will I make payments?

When registering your child through the online link, you will be asked to submit a CC, checking, or savings account and the payment method will remain on file. The form of payment will be charged on Saturdays and will be charged for the week of AfterSchool care that was just completed.

Q: Do I have to indicate which 3 days my child will attend AfterSchool?

No, you do not have to communicate which 3 days (or less) your child will be at AfterSchool. Please be sure to have close communication with your child’s school/teacher on where to send your child for the day.

Q: What happens if my child is enrolled in the 3 Day Contract and I need my child to come an extra day one week?

You will need to email the AfterSchool Coordinator, indicate an extra day of care is needed and you will be charged the difference.

Q: What happens if I enroll my child into the AfterSchool Program and I no longer need care after a couple of weeks? Am I committed to paying for the entire school year?

If your plans change and you need to remove your child from the program, you will need to contact Judy Verkamp, the AfterSchool Coordinator, at judy@tricountyymca.org

Q: Will my student receive tutoring during homework time?

No, students will not receive tutoring services during the YMCA AfterSchool Program. Students will be asked to get their homework out, (staff is not permitted to go in the child’s backpack), and time is allotted for students to work on homework. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and staff will do their best to help, but the YMCA can not guarantee homework will be completed. We encourage parents to check their child’s homework at home.
