YMCA branches serving the Conejo Valley/Las Virgenes, Simi Valley and Moorpark areas have a limited number of openings left for children in TK through fifth grade for YMCA after-school childcare programs for the 2021-22 school year.
Yarrow Family YMCA provides childcare in the Las Virgenes School District at Sumac/Mariposa, Willow and Yerba Buena elementary schools in Agoura Hills and White Oak Elementary in Westlake Village.
Simi Valley Family YMCA offers childcare at Big Springs, Hollow Hills, Katherine and White Oak elementary schools.
Conejo Valley YMCA is providing childcare at Peach Hill Academy Elementary School in Moorpark and M.A.T.E.S. Charter School in Thousand Oaks.
Childcare is available on all school days, pupil-free days and minimum days. Themed camp programs are held during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks and any school furlough days. Afterschool programs provide a structured environment that includes homework time, arts and crafts, sports and science. All childcare staff are state licensed and CPR and first aid certified.
"Working parents often struggle to find safe, reliable and experienced childcare providers," says Jaime Gonzalez, YMCA senior childcare program director. "All three YMCA branches have a long history in providing quality childcare to our community."
YMCA after-school programs will follow all COVID-related county safety and health guidelines.
Children can attend full time or part time with flexible time slots available. Daycare dismissal is at 6:00 p.m. Before-school childcare availability will depend on the level of interest. Financial assistance is available. Parents can register their children by going to www.sevymca.org.
