YMCA of Bucks to provide child care for students with virtual, hybrid school schedules


YMCA of Bucks County will offer school-age child care to support families needing care for their elementary school children who will attend in a 100% virtual or hybrid format this fall.

The program, available throughout Bucks County, provides two-, three- and five-day child care options to support student’s academic requirements in a safe, fun environment.

Y staff will oversee children in completing their school district scheduled online learning, with students bringing their laptops, school work and schedules which will be facilitated by YMCA staff. The day will also include physical activity, sports and games, STEAM projects, critical thinking challenges, socialization and swimming in some areas.

YMCA of Bucks County is already providing care and activities for students in this age range over the last few months through its summer camp program. Similar to its summer camp, the Student Success Program will follow safety protocols approved by the Bucks County Department of Health including daily health and temperature checks, social distancing, frequent hand washing, and mask-wearing for staff and children while indoors and when social distancing is not possible outdoors.

Flexible schedules are available for families and include two-, three- and five-day a week options in both full-day and half-day format. The program is open and available to the entire community with member and nonmember rates offered. Financial assistance is available.
