COVID-19 Health Protocols
Health & safety of your child is our top priority. We review all CDC, ODH and Marion Public Health recommendations and will implement procedures to mitigate transmission of COVID-19
and other communicable diseases. Our full health protocols are in the current Child Care Handbook. Protocols are subject to change.
Financial Assistance and Publicly Funded Child Care
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 childcare in the form of a copayment. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and family size.
You may apply online by clicking here 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.
New Parent Registration Meeting
Please contact Hope Bucher, to set up a meeting time. She will help you complete the registration forms and give your family a tour of your child’s classroom. This meeting is optional. If you choose not to have a Parent Registration Meeting, you must turn in all registration forms at least two business days prior to your child’s first day in the program.
The Y’s child care program ensures families have a safe and affordable home away from home for their children while parents are at work. Y child care starts at age three and continues through elementary school.
