FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
FOR HEALTHY LIVING
FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

With the start of the new school year, we know that you have questions about how you will be able to work while supporting your student's online school education.

The YMCA of the Triangle has been working diligently, and in collaboration with local school systems, to develop supplemental learning programs that align with educational requirements while also supporting out-of-school time and child care needs of students. 

These programs will be critical to supporting our community’s children, families and educators.

About

YMCA Scholastic Support Centers are a place where your K –8 students can go to participate in their online school or Virtual Academy classes. The program is offered either Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. with an extended day option for those who need full-day care, or as a full-day program from 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. Hours vary by location, and exact times may vary depending on school system student attendance policies.

The YMCA of the Triangle is a proud partner of the Wake Families and Schools Together (FAST) Initiative.

Each center is staffed by YMCA Program Directors, counselors and education specialists who are trained to assist your child with their remote learning and schoolwork. Our spaces are designed to comply with state and local guidelines for safety and social distancing.

Small classes of students will be grouped in quiet rooms for study and remote learning time. Each group will contain 10 students. 

When online school/ remote learning is completed, students will have time for homework or structured, age-appropriate academic enrichment activities.

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 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.

Health and Safety

Scholastic Support Center programs are set up with health and safety guidelines and recommendations from state and local officials. Our programming and activities might look a little different this fall based on current guidelines. 

Flexibility

Parents can register for the days of care they need. Only need care on Tuesdays and Wednesdays? Register for those days. Need care all five days? Register for those days. Need Extended Day care only Mondays? That's fine too. 

Capacities are limited. YMCA Scholastic Support Centers will open on Monday, Aug. 24. 

Registration

The YMCA will collect a $5 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
