Snow Day?

Snow Problem!

School's Out! Childcare for HOST Participants during snow days!

Program Overview:

HOST is the first-ever comprehensive national nutrition and physical activity standards for 
out-of-school programs for children in grades K-5. What’s more, the YMCA is going further by incorporating an educational and enrichment component to the national HOST standards. The Y’s comprehensive approach to out-of-school time is designed to provide children in our community the opportunity they need to learn, grow and thrive.

 School's Out Snow Day details:

If school is canceled due to inclement weather the YMCA may offer child care. It is up to the discretion of the Y to decide if it is safe to travel on the roads. When this service is offered it will be held from 9 AM to 5 PM at the First Presbyterian Church 501 East Mitchell Street Petoskey MI 49770.

Due to the untimely and disruptive nature of snow days and our ability to staff the service, we are only able to accept a limited number of students. The first 20* students will be given admission for snow day care. See under registration for more details.

School's Out program includes:

  • Daily serving of fruit, vegetable paired with a healthy snack.
  • Offering water as the preferred drink option during snack times instead of juices, punch boxes or soda.
  • At least 30 minutes of physical activity using an evidenced based CATCH curriculum.
  • Art, Science, seasonal and holiday based enrichment opportunities.
  • Free time for students to unwind, socialize and play with peers.
