YMCA After-School Program
The Lake Houston Family YMCA offers after-school child care until 6:30 p.m. at all Humble ISD elementary schools. Your children can enjoy after-school care in an environment they are familiar with – their own school! Children are provided a healthy snack, an opportunity to complete homework, a variety of self-directed activities, special projects, arts and crafts, and indoor/outdoor recreational play supervised by trained and caring YMCA staff. In addition, counselors provide a daily curriculum, which includes math and science, health and wellness, and character development. The program is licensed by the Texas Department of Family Protective Services (TDFPS), and all YMCA staff receives 40 hours of annual training in CPR, AED, first aid and child abuse prevention.
Drop-in passes are available, purchased five at a time: $100 for YMCA Full Service Members, $120 for YMCA Program Members for five passes. Passes must be used during the 2012-2013 school year.
The YMCA also offers after-school care to students with disabilities. Transportation to the designated school is provided by Humble ISD. All students complete an evaluation prior to registering for the program. Activities include non-competitive games, special events and outdoor play that develops strength and coordination. This is in partnership with Humble ISD Special Education Parent Council, Village Learning Center and the Lake Houston Family YMCA.
