Child Care Programs

Greensburg YMCA BASE (Before and After School Enrichment)

 

The Greensburg YMCA BASE program is a positive environment in which children can thrive. The program is set up center based with a variety of stations available for the child to choose from. All sites are at a STAR 1 level through the Keystone STARS program, and licensed by the Department of Human Services. Curriculum is centered around the Y’s Mission and Values which are Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibilities.  Participants can expect to keep active through organized play along with crafts, free art, block building, music, group games, and homework/study time.

Financial Assistance

 

The Greensburg YMCA strives to never turn any child away due to the families inability to pay for programming. With that in mind we will accept two forms of assistance in defraying the costs of care. One way is through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. The YMCA is able to grant scholarships to families in need due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who donate monies to the campaign.  We encourage those who may not be able to afford our services on their own to complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Welcome Center of the YMCA. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.  Additionally all child care programs accept payment from Child Care Information Services (CCIS).  Families should contact CCIS of Westmoreland County to inquire if they are qualified (724-836-4580).

 

When school is not in session, care is provided at the YMCA and includes:

• Swimming

• Excursions

• S.P.A.R.K. Sports Play & Active Recreation for Kids

• PM Snack (Lunch is NOT provided)

KDO dates are based on the following school districts calendars: Hempfield Area, Greensburg-Salem, and Yough

Kids Day Out is held at the Greensburg YMCA from 7:00am – 6:00 pm for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our professional staff will supervise your child’s day off from school in a creative and structured way.  Daily activities may include swimming, arts and crafts, games, snack and more! Register early to ensure your child has a fun and safe Kids Day Out
