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 child care 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. For questions, please contact Sr. Program Director, Andrew Grimes
Ohio Department of Education Grants: The Y is receiving a grant from ODE to support after school programming.
This grant will allow us to provide more support to children through a strong social emotional learning curriculum and family resources. It also allows us to
provide greater financial assistance to families who may need help with child care fees.
