Y Kids Club

Child Care and Youth Development

Y Kids Club is a state licensed school-aged child care program offered in the following Norfolk Public Elementary Schools in Norfolk, Nebraska:

Bel Air, Jefferson, Montessori at Lincoln, Westside, and Woodland Park.

 

 

Enrollment is currently open for the 2022/2023 School Year!  If your child will attend in August/September 2022, Enrollment forms are DUE no later than Monday, July 25th, 2022.

The Enrollment paperwork & Parent Handbook is available on the right side, for you to print, or we have copies available at the YMCA as well. Although enrollment is open and ongoing throughout the school year, we need to know how many kids we'll have attending each site, so we can plan to staff the program appropriately.

Enrollment fee is $25 per child, per school year.

Y Kids Club provides Before and After School Child Care at the schools. (Before Care is not currently offered at Westside Elementary.)

Before Care begins as early as 6 am until school begins, and After Care begins as soon as school is dismissed until 6 pm. Y Kids Club is also available from 6 am – 6 pm at the YMCA on School Out Days, Holiday Break Days, Snow Days, and Summer (Day Camp) – these days are open to anyone in grades K-6th; child does not have to regularly be attending the Y Kids Club program to participate.

The YMCA participates in the Child Care Subsidy program through DHHS If you feel you need financial assistance, please visit DHHS's ACCESSNebraska. Child Care assistance is available through the Child Care Subsidy Program, but you must complete an online application. Since the State of NE has this program in place, the YMCA does not typically offer financial assistance. When applying for assistance, you will need our Provider #03334361. Our provider name is “Norfolk Family YMCA.” Please request that they cover the $25 Enrollment Fee as well; DHHS will pay it one time only. Shayla must have the Kids Club Enrollment paperwork, Immunization Records, and DHHS's Child Care Authorization before the child can start participating in Y Kids Club.
