Scholastic Support Center Kindergarten Hubs are a place where your Kindergarten student can go to participate in their remote learning or Virtual Academy classes with additional support from our YMCA staff. Smaller student-to-staff ratios, 1:5, give your student more on-on-one time and academic enrichment activities to bolster their transition from Preschool to online Kindergarten learning.
The program is offered Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. with an extended day option until 6 p.m. Morning Meeting starts promptly at 8:45a.m. Please make sure you drop your child off in time for Morning Meeting so we can have a strong start to our day!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Smaller classes of Kindergarten students will receive the extra support they need to bridge the gap between Preschool and online Kindergarten learning. Students will be grouped together in quiet study rooms. With smaller ratios than our Scholastic Support Centers, these Kindergarten-specific classrooms offer your student more time and one-on-one attention with our staff.
Students will continue to work on their assigned remote learning work from their school. When online school/remote learning is completed, students will engage in typical Kindergarten classroom activities such as centers, movement and music, circle time and academic enrichment. Our staff will introduce the Letterland curriculum and will focus on learning through play.
Our staff members will ensure students stay on task, login at the correct times for live instruction/ video conferencing and help with any technical difficulties. Parents should also check behind their child to ensure all assignments and responsibilities have been met.
Wi-Fi is provided at every location to support video chats, streaming media and other online school demands.
Each student should bring a mask, device, headphones with a microphone and appropriate school supplies. Please make sure your student knows how to log in to their school’s website and learning platforms and how to operate their devices and software.
Students should pack two snacks, a water bottle and lunch. Please dress comfortably.
Scholastic Support Center Kindergarten Hubs are one-week programs. Each session is one week and cannot be divided into days.
The YMCA will collect a $10 per week, per program deposit and the balance will be due on the first of the month for care within that month. More information about registration and payments can be found here.
