Forever a Place to Learn

Our program follows the YMCA of the USA School Age Child Care Curriculum Framework, which includes nine core content areas: Arts & Humanities, Service Learning, Character Development, Health, Wellness & Fitness, Homework Support, Literacy, Science & Technology, Service Learning, Social Competence and Conflict Resolution.

We are excited to continue to offer our School Age Child Care (SACC) program for the 2021-2022 school year for the Scotch Plains-Fanwood public schools.

We are planning for school to be 5 full days and that our School Age Child Care program will be based once again in the Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District’s elementary and middle schools. Our goal is to create a fun, engaging and safe environment for all our participants, families and staff.

Here are a few details regarding next year’s programs:

  • Programs will have a 5 day option only
  • Before care will be held at the Y from 7:00am until start of school and includes bussing to the school. Cost is $411 per month per child.
  • After care will run from end of school day until 6:30pm. Cost is $430 per month per child.

Students must be active members of the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA from time of registration until program end to participate in our before or after care programs. You can join as a new member here.

Please note: once participation in the program ends, it is the member’s responsibility to cancel or change their membership if needed. Changes can be made here.
