Info for 2020-2021 Remote Learning Childcare

At the Y, strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility is our cause. Our Child Care Programs are our response to working parents’ critical need for reliable, high quality care for their children each day. Children enrolled in our Child Care Programs will be exposed to a core curriculum throughout the school year, which promotes the development of critical thinking skills, team work and self-expression. Our staff work together with the children to model and instill the YMCA’s Core Values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.  We will have reliable staff with the children while they participate in their daily virtual learning as well as complete homework assignments. 

Attached to this registration packet is our COVID-19 reopening guide.  It is a helpful resource for the many questions you may have regarding our program, as well as a guide to understanding the Garfield YMCA’s program policies and procedures regarding COVID-19 and infection control. Please make sure you read through all of the policies to better understand how we will operate throughout this pandemic.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 973-772-7450 and ask!  If you do not have any questions and understand all of our COVID-19 policies and procedures we ask that you sign the last page and hand it in with the rest of the packet.  We will give you a copy for your records.
