Our Staff

School Age and day camps are led by a YMCA director-qualified staff with related program experience. We meet the State of Colorado’s 1 to 15 staff/child ratio requirement — another way we work to assure a positive place for your child.

Preschool programs are led by CDHS Director qualified staff and each classroom is supervised by an ECT qualified teaching staff. We follow the ratios and maximum group size as outlined in the CDHS Child Care Rules and Regulations.

Financial Assistance

Y financial assistance participants may register online after their financial assistance has been approved. CCAP participants may not register online but must use the online ePACT system for required medical and emergency contact information and policy agreements. CCAP participants must attend all days they are registered for. CCAP participants will be billed for unexcused absences.

Paper registration forms are available for CCAP participants and upon request. Contact the Business Office.

Sibling and Other Discounts

Sibling discounts available (10% for the 2nd child; 15% for each additional child) for before/after school programs, summer day camp and preschool. You’ll need to confirm your sibling discount with the Business Office before attempting to register.

After you have received confirmation of your sibling discount from the Business Office, the following coupon codes will be applied to your account, and you will be able to register for summer day camp online. 

  • 2nd Sibling Discount 10%: 2021sibling
  • 3rd+ Sibling Discount 15%: sibling15

Thompson School District school staff are eligible for a 25% off discount. Thompson School District teachers are also eligible for free child care for the already scheduled teacher in-service days where staff are required to work in their buildings during the school year.

Only one discount per family.

Contact the Business Office if you are eligible for these discounts.

ePACT

The YMCA of Northern Colorado has adopted ePACT, a secure emergency network that we use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Your child will not be able to particpate in Y programs without the required paperwork.

Supplemental Health Information

You must complete a state licensed asthma and/or allergy health care plan form and the YMCA’s medical authorization form for any condition requiring medication or emergency treatment.

New Late Fee Policy

If you register within two business days of your child’s first day in our program, you will be charged a $70 late fee in addition to the $85 registration fee. The Y is licensed by the State of Colorado, and we must adhere to staffing ratios. Because of this, immediate care may not be available for your child if you register within two business days of the first day of care and you will be charged the late fee.

Parent Handbook

Please review all policies in the Parent Handbook prior to attending any YMCA School Age Programs or day camps.

Support & Assistance

The Y welcomes children of all abilities. Families with children with disabilities are asked to complete the Support & Assistance Questionnaire when submitting registration. The SAQ is designed to help us gain a better understanding of your child’s needs and strengths and to help us identify the specific supports and assistance that may be needed for your child to safely and successfully participate in activities and programs. The Y offers additional supports and assistance in small group settings. In a small group context, children must be able to safely and cooperatively participate in program activities such as community field trips, swimming, and outdoor sports and games. Children must also be able to reliably follow directions and cooperate with guidelines regarding their safety and well-being and the safety and well-being of others. Email us for the Support & Assistance Questionnaire.

Citizenship

The Y does not ask about immigration or citizenship status; we provide care for all children, and we have a long history of supporting immigrant families in our communities and beyond.
