SCHOOL AGE PROGRAMS:
The Saratoga Regional YMCA’s School Age Programs are for students Kindergarten-Seventh grade. These programs are designed to help your child have many new experiences and opportunities to grow into a responsible youth. The staff here at the Y encourages you to take an active role in your child’s before and/or after school care. There will be numerous opportunities for parents to talk to the qualified staff on site. There will also be the opportunity to talk to the Director whenever you feel it is necessary. These programs are licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services. The child/adult ratio is 10:1.
The YMCA School Age Programs maintain a developmental philosophy.
