2020 has really thrown everything and the kitchen sink at us. Most of our lives have been completely upheaved and changed in every way from work to our children’s day-to-day school lives. Here at the Great Miami Valley YMCA, we are dedicated to making your life feel a bit more normal. That all starts with great programs that you know, love, and rely upon to keep your kids stimulated, learning, and well cared for even when school is out. We’ve made it our mission to make 2020 just a bit more normal for all of our families, which is why we are proud to be offering our Before and After School, or BASE program throughout the school year. If you would like to learn more about our BASE programs or find out which programs and activities work best for you and your family, contact us today.

What The BASE Program Offers

2020 will be a weird year, through and through, and the reality is that we may not know about regulations, changes, and new rulings until a day or two before the upcoming school year. With so much up in the air, it can be almost impossible to feel like you know with any certainty what your child’s year will look like, let alone your own. That lack of certainty can be extremely stressful for parents and even damaging for children. Children love structure, from their daily schedule to their routines and habits, most children struggle when their normal lives are drastically changed. We know how jarring it can be when these sudden changes happen, which is why we are so dedicated to keeping our doors open, our children safe, and our families comfortable knowing that we are following all regulations, all safety protocols, and going above and beyond to ensure your children’s safety.

Our BASE, or Before and After School Enrichment Program for remote and hybrid school systems focuses on instilling our core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility into our kids to ensure that they develop and grow into their best selves. We work with children from kindergarten to 5th grade and are happy to work with children of all levels of needs and abilities. If you need to get back to work and want to make sure that your child has a safe and helpful place to Make sure that you send your child with a fully charged device for remote learning and the appropriate charging cables if needed.

How To Get Involved

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the regulations in place from the pandemic, we will need to control and manage the number of students we have enrolled in this program. The good news is, if you register now, there is still space and we are currently adding capacity to the program to ensure that we have the proper student to instructor ratio. We will be cutting off registration eventually, so make sure that you register early so that you get your child a spot in this amazing program. Once you have registered, we will contact you for any additional needs regarding your family’s individual needs and goals.

Get ahead of this fall’s school year by registering your children for our BASE program during remote learning today. Our elite and friendly instructors will make sure that your children don’t just have fun, but they are protected and thrive in a safe and engaging environment. Stay healthy and we will see you and your family soon right here at the Y!
