Help Working Families with Back to School Child Care

Back to School

The school year will look different this year and the YMCA  wants to ensure that children have access to all of the opportunities they need to learn, grow and thrive. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many changes on families and schools are trying to decide the safest and best way to educate children. As many families get ready for the school year, child care is a big concern for parents who cannot work from home.

The YMCA, will be offering a full-day Back to School program that will allow parents more flexibility while at work. Students will be able to complete their virtual learning schoolwork, take part in other enrichment programs, social-emotional activities and physical education including swimming lessons. The Y is committed to creating education-driven programs that enhance a child’s school year in a safe and enriching environment.

Our programs are built with the child’s safety at the forefront. We are taking precautions outlined by the CDC to ensure the health and safety of staff and participants, including limited class sizes, assigning students to one classroom for an entire week and modifying adult to student ratios.

The YMCA can provide more, but we need your help. Your gift will help working families in our community and inspire kids to reach their greatest potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically through high impact programs that change lives.



Consider a charitable gift to the Y and let people know how much you care about our community. When you give to the Y, you make a meaningful impact right in your own neighborhood.

With a $1,000 donation, a banner with your company will hang in our Springfield, Ridley and Lansdowne branches for a year. You will even get a banner to hang proudly in your business recognizing you as a Family Friendly business.

For more information or to make a donation contact Michael Ranck, President & CEO for more information.
