The YMCA is the one of the largest providers of high quality, deliberately affordable school-age programs in Rockland County. Every day at our School Age Child Care (SACC) programs, we help hundreds of children reach their fullest potential in a welcoming, supportive environment. By incorporating the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all of our youth services programming, we give children the solid foundation they need to thrive—not only in school, but beyond.
Our office in Stony Point serves as the headquarters for our before and after school care program for kindergarteners through middle school in cooperation with North Rockland School District.
Before School Care - Held onsite at Thiells Elementary School from 7:00 to 9:00 AM, and breakfast is included. Students who do not attend Thiells Elementary are bused to their respective schools in time to start the regular school day. Discounted rate for upper elementary school students since their school day starts earlier.
After School Care - There is an after-school program serving each upper (James Farley, Haverstraw, and Willow Grove) and lower (Stony Point, Thiells, and West Haverstraw) elementary school from dismissal until 6:30 PM. The Y's primary goal of after-school care is to provide a quality, affordable, safe place for children to go so that parents have the freedom to work, knowing that their children's needs are being addressed. Children have talents and skills to develop, energy to use and huge reservoirs of creativity to explore. Our programs run every day until 6:30 to accommodate our working and commuting parents.
School’s Out Club: On most days when school is not in session, the YMCA runs a recreation program for school age children, from 8:00am to 6:00pm at Camp Bullowa in Stony Point. The child does not need to be enrolled in our before and after school or camp, to attend this program. Activities include hiking, soccer, baseball, foosball, holiday crafts, karaoke and more. Call Lisa Madonna at 845 643 3071 or John Dillon 845 643 3072 for more information.
Admission and Registration Information - Admission for all programs is on a pre-registered, first-come, first-served basis with special consideration for children who need care five days a week. Children must be registered for at least two days per week.
