Aurora

What your kids do AFTER school is as important as what they do AT school.

Our daily curriculum makes us a unique child care provider for children 5 years old to 12 and sets us apart from others. We provide a mentoring relationship between your child and our caring staff that maximizes their personal empowerment, exploration and learning. A safe setting, character values, positive role models and enrichment activities area all part of the Y child care experience.

Registration Info

Online registration takes 5-10 minutes. Please use Firefox or Chrome as your browser. 

This year you have a two-part registration process:

  1. STEP ONE: Register your child/ren for Before & After School Care through the links below, this will reserve your child's spot. This includes paying a $50 non-refundable registration fee per child.
  2. STEP TWO: The guardian will receive an email invitation from a platform called ePACT to submit their child’s medical information (and immunizations) online before the start of the program. Please expect to receive the invitation 3 to 4 days after you initially register your child through our website.

Age Requirements

Please note all children must be between the ages of 5 to 12 years old to register for YMCA Before and After School Program.

Scholarships **Not Currently Being Accepted, All Scholarships Have Been Awarded**

Through the generosity of our donors, the YMCA is able to offer a limited number of scholarships for Before and After School Child Care, to apply please fill out the scholarship form and submit to scholarships@denverymca.org.

CCCAP (Colorado Child Care Assistance Program)

To use CCCAP benefits for the YMCA Before and After School program, please call 720-524-2792 to inquire about available slots. Not all program locations are CCCAP eligible and we have limited slots that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please do not register online as you will be charged full-price and end up accountable for the balance!

Immunizations

Per child care licensing laws, all parents are required to submit their immunizations via our ePACT medical platform before the commencement of camp. We will not accept paper immunizations as we have officially transitioned into a paper-less online process.
