Our SACC-Before And After School Care program is designed to provide care for children while parents are working. This program focuses on building self confidence and character. We emphasize the Y’s four core values in character development—caring, honesty, respect and responsibility – in every activity and interaction.
Our goals are:
SACC-Before And After School Care requires participants to have a current Y membership. The membership entitles a child, for additional fees, to participate in SACC-Before And After School Care and other programs. With a youth membership, a child ages 6-12 may participate in open youth fitness, gym and swim times, at no additional cost.
Our program follows the standards of the National YMCA School Age Care Curriculum, whose core components include:
A parent handbook with the program policies and payment schedules can be downloaded below. Enrollment and medical forms will be distributed at the time of registration or can be downloaded below. These forms must be completed and returned to the YMCA of Montclair, Park Street Branch, 25 Park Street, before a child can start the program.
Tuition is based on the number of school days, broken down to ten equal monthly installments for your convenience. The fee is not based on the number of calendar days per month, and no prorating of fees is allowed. The only exception is if you enroll after the 15th of the month.
It is our policy that monthly tuition is paid in full. We do not prorate for absences or by the hour. If needed, children can be withdrawn for one or more months at a time. If a child is withdrawn, and that program has a waiting list, the child WILL lose his/her spot. We cannot hold spaces under any circumstances.
