After School Discovery Program
We build strong kids, strong families, strong communities.
What is ASDP?
The Afterschool Discovery Program is school age child care each school day from the time school dismisses until 6:00pm. The program is based in local schools except Charles England, Southwest, Pickett, South Lexington, and Lexington Middle which are based at the YMCA facility. The program operates daily except for holidays and days when there is no school due to bad weather. On these days care may be provided at the YMCA. Care will also be available on teacher work days and days when school dismisses early. We do not have on-site care at Northwest, Southwood, or Tyro school sites for 2013-14. However, we offer a Northwest location at Good Hope United Methodist Church on Hampton Rd. (transportation available between schools). Southwood students may enroll at Central Middle or Southmont after school sites but parents will have to arrange for transportation to those sites. Tyro students can attend the Reeds location providing we get a minimum enrollment of 8 students – transportation will be offered. Please contact the Y for more information.
ASDP will meet in accordance with the school year schedule. ASDP will operate daily from school dismissal until 6:00pm. Teacher work days: the site supervisor will inform you of whether you meet at the school site or at the YMCA. Holidays and days when school is canceled due to weather, care will be offered at the YMCA. On snow days, care will start at 6:30 a.m., or if there is a delay in the Y opening, care will start one hour after the Y opens. If the Y is closed, the after school program is also closed. Early dismissal due to weather will operate at the school site but parents are encouraged to pick up their children as soon as possible. The program will not operate on the following days: Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Friday after, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Good Friday and Memorial Day. On days when all day care is provided, care will begin at 6:30am at the YMCA, or as early as 7:00am at school sites. Pick-up time will still be no later than 6:00pm. Children should bring a bag lunch on full days.
The YMCA establishes membership dues and program fees necessary to meet operational and maintenance costs. However, it is the policy of the YMCA that no one be denied the benefit of membership or participation in programs due to financial hardship. We encourage people who might benefit from participation in the YMCA but are in need of financial assistance to contact the YMCA. Funds for this purpose are provided through contributions to our annual sustaining membership campaign and the United Way. The YMCA will assist people based on demonstrated need and the YMCA’s ability to fund assistance.
A registration fee of $20.00 is required with every registration. The following fees are paid monthly or bi-monthly. Anyone who chooses to pay for the entire school year at the beginning of the school year will be given an 8% discount. Fees can also be paid monthly by bankdraft. Contact the front desk for more information regarding bankdrafts.
