Kidscape & Childwatch
Kidscape and Childwatch are services just for your family! We provide children with positive social experiences in a safe, Christian environment. These programs are dedicated to meeting the needs of children by providing an emotionally warm, safe and nurturing environment while parents work out or participate in other activities.
We are observing social distancing and limited capacity due to the COVID-19 risks. The Y will engage in social interaction with the children using arts, crafts and a few other items. Children are permitted to bring a snack, drink, small toy or electronic device. All items must be labeled with the child’s name. Refrigerators and microwaves will not be available. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged property.

Spend time with the Y Afterschool program. From homework help to arts and crafts, it’s all here under the supervision of our trained and caring YMCA staff. To provide the safest possible environment, key staff are certified in CPR/First Aid. Breathe easier this school year knowing that when school lets out, your children are safe in the care of the YMCA.
Afterschool transportation is offered for many Sumter County Schools elementary and middle schools. We also have a drop off program for homeschooled children and other schools.
The program hours are based on Sumter County School dismissal and ends at 6:00 pm. Fees include all-day teacher workdays and scheduled early dismissal days. Holiday care is available at an additional cost for times such as Christmas Break, Spring Break and other holidays observed by the schools.
