S.A.F.E. (Safe Active Fun Enrichment) is the Fox Valley Family YMCA's Before and After School Program provided in surrounding school districts. In select locations, based on community need, parents can drop children off for AM Care at 6:30 am. PM Care is offered at sites and enables parents to have their child cared for in a nurturing and safe environment that provides time for homework assistance mixed with fun and learning activities. All PM Care sites operate from dismissal time through 6:00 pm.
We offer homework assistance, project based learning, creative enrichment activities, supervised athletic play, informal games, nutritional snacks, social opportunities, mentoring and much, much more! In addition, throughout the year your child can enjoy theme days, special events and holiday parties.
You will find professional, dependable and safe care for children in grades K–6 where the YMCA Character values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility are taught in all of our programs. By following the “Let’s Move Initiative” standards we are committed to providing a healthy environment for your child. We strive for a staff to child ratio of 1:12. Prior to their employment with The Y, all staff members must undergo thorough background checks and are trained in CPR, First Aid and child abuse prevention.
