With all of the uncertainty around how school will happen, two things are for sure — kids need to learn and parents need to work. Our new Y Learning Center at the Stratford Y allows children to attend remote school classes supervised by Y staff, so parents can have peace of mind while at work.
Students in grades K-6 will be provided with a quiet and supported place to attend virtual classes. Outside of remote school classes, Y staff will lead arts and STEM activities, physical activity, swim time, Gaga, and archery. Our staff are role models with a passion for working with children. All staff go through a rigorous interview process with reference and background checks before being offered employment. They are trained in First Aid/CPR, Medication Administration, Child Abuse recognition and prevention, as well as child development.
The Y Learning Center is state-licensed by the Office of Early Childhood and will follow all CDC and state guidelines regarding group size and mask wearing. Care4Kids is accepted and financial aid is available for those who qualify. Weekly payment plans available.
Students will need to provide their own computer and headphones. Please bring a nut-free lunch, a bathing suit, a towel and appropriate clothes for outdoor play. Our goal is to keep students outside as much as possible! The SACC Safety Plan will be followed by the Y Learning Center. Call or visit our website to learn more and enroll your child today!
