Before and After School Care in Warren County

Kids need to remain active and continue learning before and after school. At Countryside YMCA, we have before and after school care throughout Warren County designed to keep your child active.

How Your Child Can Benefit from Before and After School Care

Children need to stay active to reach their potential. Yet, millions of children go home across the country and have to fend for themselves after school. Our program offers another option where your child can:

  • Increase their academic effort and get better grades

  • Improve social skills and meet kids from across the greater Lebanon, Ohio area

  • Remain under the supervision and be safe with our volunteers and team members

  • Engage in physical activity that promotes a healthy lifestyle

  • Relax and be a kid without having to fend for themselves before and after school

It takes a village to raise a child, and we offer an excellent opportunity to place your child in a nurturing environment before and after school.

Are you ready to enroll your child in our Lebanon before and after-school care programs? We’re now enrolling students and would be happy to welcome another smiling face to the group. Learn more about enrollment below.

Each year, the Y works to provide engaging activities in a caring and safe environment both before and after school.

Countryside YMCA offers before and after school programs for families enrolled in several local school districts including Lebanon City Schools, Little Miami School District, and Clinton Massie Schools. Financial assistance is available to ensure every child and teen has the opportunity to learn and grow at the Y.

Countryside YMCA is currently enrolling at all locations. Register today - space is limited! 

Financial Aid for Childcare

Childcare financial assistance is available to families that meet the income eligibility guidelines. Once approved, the recipient will be responsible for 50-90% of the tuition weekly and YMCA financial aid will fund the remaining 10-50%. This program is also available to families currently enrolled who experience a job loss or other financial hardship. If you receive childcare financial assistance, it will be activated at the time of enrollment.

Eligibility will be reviewed every three to six months.

New Guidelines for Child Care Programs to Help Slow the Spread of Covid-19

  • There currently is no mask mandate in our school-age programs; however, this is subject to change based on information received and rules set forth by Governor DeWine and/or ODJFS Child Care Licensing.

  • Health screenings and temperature checks will be done on all students and staff upon arrival.  Kids and staff must have a temperature below 100.4 to participate that day.

  • Drop off and pick up will be located outside or in the lobby to limit the amount of traffic within the buildings.

  • Ratios and group sizes have been determined based on the ability to properly social distance. Staff practices social distancing and plans age appropriate socially distant activities.

  • There is frequent cleaning and sanitizing of high traffic areas throughout the day.

  • Staff and children follow rigorous handwashing throughout the day.
