Child Care Inclement Weather Policy

Dear Parents,

 

As the cold weather approaches and snow is more prevalent we wanted to remind families of our inclement weather policy. In the event of severe weather, the Southington Community YMCA reserves the right to close/delay openings. Below is a listing of program specific information as it relates to child care. 

 

* Please be aware that these are guidelines. The Y reserves the right to make changes as needed. In the event of severe weather the Y will consider the recommendations made by the Town Manager and the Governor when making decisions regarding closings and delays. 

 

 

Preschool/Jump Start 

 

- If there is a delayed opening or a closing in the public schools due to inclement weather then our Preschool will open at 7:00am instead of 6:30am. In the event that Southington Public Schools have an early dismissal we will provide care until 5:30. For the safety of the children and staff we do encourage parents to pick up as soon as possible. There will be NO EXTENDED CARE available. 

 

 

Nursery School 

 

-If there is no school for Southington Public Schools Nursery School will be cancelled. If there is a two hour delay, class will begin at 10:00am and will end at the regular time. If there is a three hour delay, class will be cancelled. In the event of an early dismissal program hours will remain the same however, to ensure everyone’s safety we encourage parents to pickup as soon as possible. 



 

School Age 

 -Delayed Opening: Morning Care programs at Derynoski, Kelley and the Y-Site open at 7:00am. 

 

-School Cancellation: Before/After Care will be cancelled on days that school is cancelled. Children can participate in a Snow Day Program

(7:00am-5:30pm) if pre- registered. 

 

-Early Dismissal: Children attend their respective site locations at their dismissal time. Care will be provided until 5:30pm. For the safety of the children and staff we do encourage parents to pick up as soon as possible. There will be NO EXTENDED CARE available. 

Enrichment Classes
