Grades Kindergarten through 4th:

Effective 9/1/2016 - Children under the age of 10 are not permitted in the Y without the supervision of an adult.

Worried about who’s watching your kids? The Y Early Learning Center understands and has programs in which kids can be in a trusting atmosphere; where they are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendships and grow in confidence, independence, and respect for themselves and others:

SAC - This is a childcare program for any child enrolled in Kindergarten through grade 4 (age 10) 

  • SAC offers snacks, activities, STEM, homework help, physical fitness, and more by trained Y Early Learning Center employees
  • Before/After-school SAC is K through 4th grade
  • Must be registered through Childcare Department
  • Will be provided snack/drink daily after school (a refillable drink container is suggested)
  • Children enrolled in other Y programs will be taken to/from those activties as needed by a Y employee
  • SAC will be held if there is a 2-hour delay. Children enrolled in AM ONLY or AM/PM ONLY will be bused to school
  • If a 2-hour delay turns into a No School Day, care will continue until the closing of Childcare at 5:30 pm.
  • Any child K through 9 years, who is not registered with our SAC program, will not be permitted to come to the Y without adult supervision.
  • If a child (K-age 10) is registered for a Y program, they must either be enrolled in SAC or a parent/guardian/responsible adult will need to bring them into the Y and take them to their program.
  • The Y Early Learning Center is a PA DHS Licensed Childcare Facility and a Keystone STARS 3 participant.
