Quincy Family YMCA
The Quincy Family YMCA will offer to provide a place for kids to attend their virtual school classes with supervision, instead of going to school in person or staying at home.
- Students will be required to wear masks at specific times, like when they come in or out of the building and when walking between rooms, like the bathroom or the gym.
- The Y will not be providing any educational materials. Staff will only help students with the virtual curriculum option provided by their school.
- Students will have to bring their own laptops from home or the ones provided by the school.
- The program is not exclusive to Quincy residents. Families from surrounding areas can also use the daycare program if their school provides a virtual classroom option.
- Parents can drop students off as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick up as late as 6 p.m.
- Registration for the program is now open. The cost will be $100/week for members and $125/week for non-members. Financial assistance is available.
- Parents can register by calling the Quincy Family YMCA at 217-222-9622
