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 OPEN for the 2021/2022 School Year!

The Enrollment paperwork & Parent Handbook is available on the left side, for you to print, or we have copies available at the YMCA as well. Please submit enrollment forms if your child will use Y Kids Club at the start of the school year. 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.

The enrollment packet includes all required paperwork to begin the Y Kids Club program, program rates, policies & procedures, and the Parent Handbook.

Y Kids Club provides Before and After School Child Care at the schools.

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.

Monthly Calendars are always available at each Kids Club location, the YMCA Information Center, and on this webpage. Please note the days your child comes to the Y for swimming and other activities! Check out the Y Kids Club flyer to read about a typical day in Kids Club, and learn about our swim days.

See the Winter Weather flyer for more information about late starts, snow days, and early dismissals.

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.
