Bullitt County YMCA School-Age Child Care Program

With so many demands on today's families, parents need all the help they can get. That's why the YMCA is America's largest nonprofit child care provider. At the Y, we offer affordable before- and after-school child care with a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills

Bullitt County YMCA School-Age Child Care Program

Intro

In partnership with Bullitt County Public schools, the Y offers before- and after-school programs for students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

All of our highly trained, hand-picked staff are CPR and First Aid certified and receive extensive hours of training and professional development. We run background checks on all of our staff, so we know that we have the very best role models. Since safety is our priority, we make sure that we meet or exceed state staff-to-child ratios.

School Breaks

School-Age Child Care programs offer continuous care during school breaks, including in-service and snow days, breaks and summer camps. In addition to our usual before-school and after-school activities that encourage academic enrichment, building self-esteem, healthy snacks and physical activity, we also have engaging theme-based activities and we take fun field trips during school breaks. For more details on child care for school breaks, please call.

  • Snow Days

    When schools are closed due to inclement weather, sites will be consolidated. We'll offer a full day of activities from 6 am - 6 pm for participants (traffic and weather permitting). Our snow day care is available for currently registered participants only and operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a site reaches capacity, you may be asked to choose another location. On snow days, children should bring a sack lunch along with a hat, gloves, boots and a warm coat.

    Snow Day Sites

    • Mount Washington Elementary
    • Roby Elementary
  • Bullitt Days

    In order for children to attend child care during in-service days, registration must be completed. We will have sign-up sheets at all of our sites during each in-service day. Spaces are limited so sign up early!

    Please send your child with a non-refrigerated sack lunch, we'll provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack. If your site is going on a field trip, please drop off your child by the designated time in order to ensure care for the day

    In-service days will be included in your child's attendance for the week unless the full day is the only day they attend. If your child is signed up for a specific day, you will be charged for the full day of care, regardless of attendance.
