Kid's Day Out
The response to COVID-19 is evolving and changing rapidly. As you may know, on Monday, March 16th we closed our 4 Green Bay YMCA facilities. These closures were preventative in nature. We have not had a confirmed case or exposure to our YMCA facilities known to us at this time.
Kid’s Day Out Program | Here for our Community
In response to the needs of our community, the YMCA will be extending full-day child care to children of essential business employees.
Our Kid’s Day Out program is a full-day state licensed program offered from 6:30am-6:00pm for children 5-12 years of age. We are unable to serve infants and toddlers or anyone under the age of 5. Kid’s Day Out is offered at our West Side YMCA (Howard) location.
To Register for Kid’s Day Out
• Registrations will be taken by phone only (920.436.9675) from 6:30am-6:00pm Monday-Friday. They will not be accepted via email, in-person or voicemail.
• Families may register for any amount of days for the week based on their need.
• A registration and health history form will be emailed to you upon calling our office to register.
The Y is offering the Kid’s Day Out program to any essential business employee for a Y member rate of $32.50/day regardless of membership status. Financial assistance is available.
We will assess the need for continued childcare on a weekly basis and as long as the need persists and we are able to meet childcare guidelines from the State of Wisconsin we will provide services.
Our commitment to safety
As our YMCA facilities are closed, the Kid’s Day Out programs being held at our West Side YMCA facilities will not have other Y members or participants present, only our Y staff and the participants in the Kid’s Day Out program. This limits exposure risk.
We are limited to a total of 50 children each day by declaration from the governor of Wisconsin. Licensed Childcare facilities are exempt from the gatherings of more than 10 order.
Parents/Guardians will be asked to reply to a verbal health questionnaire at drop off and will not enter the childcare space to further limit any risk. Staff will also be screened for health each day.
During the program, our childcare staff will promote frequent handwashing and safety practices.
The program takes place in several large spaces, with physical activity time in the gym.
Tables and seating have been adjusted as well as the number of children engaged in a particular space or activity and keeping large group games limited to under 10 children.
Our staff teach kids about their “superhero” space where they create space around their bodies. This allows us to create personal space boundaries with the children.
Surfaces and play spaces and supplies will be disinfected daily.
Kid's Day Out (Ages 5-12)
The Y's Kid's Day Out program opens its doors when your child's school closes. We offer two locations that provide full-day programming, from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, on all official "no school" days. Bring your kids for a fun filled day of swimming, gym, crafts and games.
Our Kid's Day Out dates are scheduled to accommodate Ashwaubenon, East De Pere, West De Pere, Green Bay, Howard-Suamico and Pulaski school calendars. For children ages 5-12.
