Welcome to the West Valley Family YMCA! As local school districts adapt their plans for the upcoming school year, you may be wondering how you will navigate the new school day structure while meeting the demands of work and home. The West Valley Family YMCA is here to support you! We are pleased to extend a safe child care option to you and your family, as we all work together through this pandemic. Our child care program will look a little different, compared to what you may be used to. Each day, we will support children in completing their distance learning. In addition, the program will offer STEAM activities, recreation and outdoor time, homework support and enrichment activities. We will offer all of this, while ensuring that physical distancing and all safety precautions are maintained. Daily, upon arrival, we will check the temperatures of all children and staff and conduct a daily wellness assessment. Throughout the day, children will have an opportunity to wash their hands, while staff disinfect and sanitize common surfaces. Children will remain in the same small group of 12 children or less, in the same room, with the same YMCA staff members. Staff will wear face coverings at all times and children will be encouraged to keep their face coverings on throughout the day. At night, the rooms will be deep cleaned, disinfected and sanitized, in preparation for the next day. We know that the past few months have been challenging, to say the least. We hope to offer you and your family a little bit of relief to assist you in managing this upcoming school year. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Y again soon!
