Y-CLUB For Dakota Valley School District

Y-CLUB For Dakota Valley School District

The YMCA has been a part of the Siouxland Community since 1884 and we are committed to helping each child learn, grow and thrive! We are cause-driven leaders that provide quality care focusing on the following areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our desire is to treat each child as an individual as we seek to implement our four core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect & Responsibility into everything we do for before & after-school programming.

We not only provide affordable, quality care, but also bring Dakota Valley parents the opportunity to choose a before & after school program that involves their children in recreational sports, swim lessons, dance & theatre classes, volunteerism through social responsibility, & so much more!

Y-CLUB FAQ:

  1. What ages is Y-CLUB for?
    Y-CLUB is for K-5th graders. K-3rd will be located at the Elementary School building and 4th-5th grade will be located in the Upper Elementary School/Middle School building.
  2. Can anyone register for Y-CLUB?
    This program is available specifically for Dakota Valley School students ONLY… we hope to expand our reach in the future to even more schools!
  3. Do you have an afternoon program on early out days?
    If there is an early out before a break or holiday, we will still have a program available. If there is an early out due to the weather, we will not have the Y-CLUB program.
  4. Will you have a morning program if there is a late start?
    No, we will not have a morning program if there is a late start.
  5. Is there an option for childcare for no school days?
    When there is no school for a full-day due to holidays or breaks, the care would be provided at the Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA at an extra charge. Pre-registration for School Days Out is required and available for all kids, not just DV students.
  6. Is there Y-CLUB for early outs?
    We will have Y-CLUB for scheduled early outs that follow the Dakota Valley School Calendar. We will NOT have care for early outs that are not scheduled or weather-related.
  7. How does the payment schedule work?
    a. Payments are due one week in advance by phone, in person, or schedule. Payment for the first week of care must be paid by August 5th, 2019 (to start on August 15th), and payment for week two is due the Monday of the first week your child is enrolled. Subsequent payments are due each Monday. You will not need to make a payment during the final week your child is enrolled in Y-CLUB because of the advance payment schedule.
    b. Late Payment Policy: A $25 late fee will be charged if the stated fees are not paid by 6:00 PM every Monday. If payment is not received by Wednesday, a Notice of Dismissal will be issued and payment must be made in full by that Friday at 12:00 PM for services to continue.
  1. What does my child do at Y-CLUB?
    We not only provide affordable, quality care but also bring parents the opportunity to choose a before & after school program that teaches children about leading a healthy lifestyle. Through the use of CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health), your children will create behavior changes by identifying healthy foods, and by participating in recreational sports, swim lessons, dance & theatre classes, volunteerism through social responsibility, & SO much more!
