Our health protocols include daily health screenings of children & staff, daily temperature checks, limited access to the classroom by parents, handwashing and
frequent sanitizing. Our full health protocols are in the Preschool Handbook. Protocols are subject to change based on changing conditions in the community, CDC, and health department recommendations.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) helps families who are working or in school pay for childcare through the Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) program. Child Care Centers must have at least a 1 Star Rating in order to accept PFCC payments. With our 1 Star Rating, we are able to accept PFCC payments, which may mean that your out of pocket costs could be reduced. Families qualifying for PFCC may be required to pay for part of your child care in the form of a co-payment. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and family size.
You may apply at https://rom the Y Service Center.jfs.ohio.gov/cdc/Page4.stm or call Missy Davidson with Marion County JFS at 740-223-1921. If don’t qualify for PFCC, but meet our financial assistance requirements, then you can apply for our in-house financial assistance. The application process is simple and quick. You can download an application from the Y’s website at www.marionymca.org or pick one up from the Y Service Center.
Register in person at the Y or online at marionymca.org/register. After initial registration, parents will need to complete all required registration forms prior to your child’s first day at the program. Parents will receive these forms by email.
Kids can play in a fun, safe environment under the supervision of responsible Y staff so members can work out or take a class.

MARION MENTORS PROGRAM (MM)
The Marion Mentors Program is an organization powered by the collaborative efforts of the Marion Family YMCA, the Marion City Schools, and Nucor Steel. The purpose of the organization is to support the development of one-to-one relationships between a volunteer adult role model and a student. This unique relationship provides support and encouragement, and can help a young person develop the academic, social, personal, and leadership skills to foster success in their future. The MM Program is an effective way to improve the student’s self-esteem, expand their vision of opportunities, and reinforce the Leader In Me concepts presented to every student in the Marion City Schools.
MM21 is currently recruiting adult Mentors. Apply online at www.marionmentors.org.
