A MESSAGE FROM CINDY SHIELDS, SENIOR CHILD CARE DIRECTOR

Dear YMCA Families,

I know that the past several months have been challenging for you and your children, to say the least. Usually, at this time of year, we find ourselves looking forward to the familiar Back-To-School routine that we know September always brings. No doubt, that this year, September will look a little different.

At the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge & South Amboy, we have worked hard since April to provide safe & healthy child care environments for your children. As September approaches, we stand ready to take on the challenge of making sure your children are engaged and learning throughout their day. Or goal is to prioritize health and safety, while keeping an emphasis on educational achievement.

Our program staff will be ready to support virtual learning for your school age children in a variety of locations offering flexible schedules. Please note, that if your child is attending any form of in-person school schedule, we may need to restrict them to certain locations so that we can group them by schools to limit the spread of illness. We also may not be able to transport in a timely manner that ensures their timely arrival and departure to and from school. Please understand that current health & safety recommendations must take priority.

If you have previously filled out a registration form or a reservation form, you will be given priority in our programs. We will still need you to complete a registration form as consents and health history are required. You can contact myself or your program Director to do so.

We are looking forward to the opportunity to once again serve you and your families!
Sincerely,

Cindy Shields
Senior Child Care Director
