Y-Kids Childcare

July 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As you read this letter, I hope that you and your family are enjoying a restful and relaxing summer vacation. However, those summer days seem to go a little faster, and it is time to begin planning for the new school year. That planning includes meeting your needs for safe, reliable and affordable childcare both before and after school.

Once again, the Ocean County YMCA will operate the Y-Kids Program at the Whiting, Ridgeway and Manchester Township Elementary Schools and the Manchester Township Middle School. Their program includes increased hours for parents with a starting time as early as 6:30 a.m. The Y-Kids Program also includes homework time, structured free play, a Book Club and nutrition program that provides a healthy breakfast before school and a healthy snack after school.

Please see the information sheet to help you make your decision. The information sheet includes Jennifer Friedhoff’s phone number should you have any specific questions about your child’s care. Please feel free to contact the YMCA at 732-341-9622 X2217 to complete your registration.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child back for the 2018-19 school year. If I can be of any help in planning child care or any part of your child’s school year, please feel free to contact me at 732-350-5900. Thank you.
