YWCA Before & After School Program
The YWCA Before and After School Program provides child care for elementary school-age children (ages 4-12) during the school year. The program runs from 6:30 a.m. until school starts and resumes at the close of school until 6:00 p.m.
The Before and After School Program currently operates at many schools in Janesville and Milton.
Parents sign their child up for the hours that you need care. Each week, parents submit a schedule listing the days and hours your child will attend the program for the following week. Children must attend a minimum of four hours per week, per session. We will also work around your child’s extracurricular activities.
There is an enrollment fee per child of $95 for the first child, and $30 for each additional child. The weekly fee is based on the number of hours per session. Child care funding is accepting through the W-2 Program and the YWCA offers financial assistance to eligible families.
- Call the YWCA to see if space is available
- If space is available, come into the YWCA and complete a registration form and pay the enrollment fee. Inquire about when the next parent meeting will be held and plan to attend.
