Inquiry Form 


Do you provide snack?
The YMCA provides a healthy snack for all children attending the after school program session. Parents who would like to send an additional snack are asked to only send a fruit, vegetable, or applesauce as these are shelf-stable and non-allergenic.

When is payment due?
Tuition is billed in equal payments and is due the 15th of the prior month - August 15th, 2024, through May 15th, 2025. The cost of tuition varies and depends upon the care schedule selected.

Where do I drop off my child?
Drop off varies by each site. Please view the parent handbook above. Contact Nathan Nelson, Youth & Family Director, with any questions: nathann@gcfymca.org.

Where do I pickup my child?
Pickup varies by each site; please see the parent handbook linked above. Staff will greet the parent with necessary sign-out materials. Once this is completed, the child will no longer be responsible under the afterschool program for that specific day. A form of ID must be brought each time to pick up.

If a child is picked up after 6:00 PM, a fee of $1 per minute thereafter will accrue and be charged to your monthly bill.
