2021-2022 Before & After School Registration begins May 17th

The Hal Welsh East Area Family YMCA offers licensed School-Age Childcare (SACC) programs throughout the school year for the East Syracuse-Minoa and Fayetteville-Manlius school districts, as well as Immaculate Conception School. The SACC Fun Club program reinforces positive values in a caring atmosphere. Children build confidence, trust and positive values by making friends and taking part in group projects and activities where fair play, team work and responsibility are emphasized. Care is also available on half days, vacation days and snow days.
