Before School Care Program

School Age Child Care (SACC) extends your child’s learning day in a fun and meaningful way! We emphasize the Y’s four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all activities. SACC serves children in elementary schools for the South Orange/Maplewood School District and follows the School District’s calendar. Our YMCA offers, Vacation Camp, a Child Care Program, for most days the school district is closed. We also offer Snow Camp, for most school snow days.

2019-2020 Registration Information:

Priority Registration: Priority Registration is for families currently in our Before and After School Program, siblings of those members, and rising kindergarteners in our ECLC program. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.

Priority Registration does not mean spaces are guaranteed to current Before and After School families, only as the designated time for registration.

New Online Registration: The Y is introducing a new member-focused online account management and registration system. Our 2019/2020 online registration for Priority Members will be Monday, May 13th. Registration start time will be shared closer to the registration start date.
