During the academic year, we provide before and after school care for youth in kindergarten through sixth grade. Our vision is for all Countryside YMCA childcare programs to be the leaders in building children of character. Through the use of  "The Creative Curriculum," our program encompasses the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

Program Highlights

  • Four Star Step-Up-to-Quality rating
  • A variety of activities provide opportunities for children to grow cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and creatively.
  • Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-directed and teacher-assisted activities.
  • Group and individual play activities help promote decision-making, self-confidence, responsible behavior, and self-control.
  • Lebanon schools provide transportation to and from school for all Lebanon schools, including St. Francis and Lebanon Christian. 

Guidelines for Child Care Programs to Help Slow the Spread of Communicable Disease

  • Health screenings and temperature checks will be done if a child appears ill. Children and staff must have a temperature below  100.4 to participate that day. 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.

  • We adhere to the Staff-child ratios and group sizes determined by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services; there are currently no required modifications.  Staff practices social distancing and plans age-appropriate social distancing activities.

  • Staff and children follow rigorous handwashing throughout the day.

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