YMCA Afterschool Care Approved - Begins Monday, January 14th

A message from UNIVERSITY SCHOOL


Dear Families,

The licensing for YMCA afterschool care at University School has been approved and they are starting today!  They will be in the two learning cottages behind the main school building and their phone number is (423) 341-6925.

Children must be registered and the payments information must be completed before they can attend afterschool with the YMCA. We have registrations and payment information available in the office and they are also available to print above.  

  • Turn in the completed registrations and payment agreement form to the office before your child attends afterschool. (If you want to pay through your checking accout, please attach a voided check. If you are paying by credit or debit card, someone from the YMCA will contact you to get your payment information.) The YMCA requires you to commit on the days that you want your child to attend.  This is important for them for staffing reasons. For example, if you sign up for Mondays and Wednesdays, you will be charged for those days whether your child attends or not. 
  • Continue to notify your child's teacher on the days they are attending afterschool.
  • The YMCA offers childcare to children from Kindergarten to 8th grade.  Any students in those grades who do not get picked up at dismissal need to attend afterschool childcare with the YMCA where they will be supervised until they are picked up (unless they are staying for a school sponsored afterschool activity with a teacher or coach).

Please contact Mrs. Day or Dr. Penley if you have any questions.
