School Age Child Care
The Oswego YMCA is excited to offer safe, fun, and creative before and after school programming at our local elementary schools.
The YMCA is a non-profit organization that is over 160 years old. We have dedicated our practices to building strong child care programs and are the #1 child care provider in the nation. This program provides convenience for working parents by offering care Monday - Friday from 6:45 am until 8:45 am and 3:30 pm until 6:00 pm. Our program assists in the continual socialization of your child. It encourages children to participate in activities which will benefit them mentally, physically, and emotionally. The children are given the opportunity to interact with one another and with adults. The program will foster children’s personal growth and cultivate self confidence. It provides a warm and friendly experience for children.

ly before attending the program. Staff members must take students directly from school/bus in the afternoon as there can be no interruptions in transport as for the liability issue.

calling in for sick days. The SACC Program reserves the right to terminate care for parents who continually neglect to call in absences to the childcare site.
