Snow Days at Heritage
The YMCA Heritage Youth Development Center offers Snow Day care for children ages 5-12 from 7am - 6pm. At Heritage's state-of-the-art facility, your child will receive warm, safe, structured care that instills YMCA core values of honesty, responsibility, caring and respect. We also provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack as well as friendship-building activities during the time your child spends at Heritage.
While we will make every possible effort to remain open to offer Snow Day care, facility closures due to weather may occur. Information about facility closings can be found on local news stations and on our Heritage Facebook page.
Children who attend No-School-Days must have a complete and up-to-date School Plus afterschool care packet with a copy of current shot records on file at Heritage as per State Licensing requirements.
- Children who attend afterschool care at Heritage do not need to fill out additional paperwork.
- Children who attend School Plus afterschool care at other sites may have their School Plus packet faxed to Heritage from the Downtown YMCA. Additional paperwork may be required to ensure the best care for your child. This paperwork will only be necessary the first time your child attends No-School-Days in a given school year.
- Children who do not attend a Joplin Family YMCA School Plus afterschool care program may enroll by filling out the appropriate paperwork at Heritage Youth Development Center and submitting a copy of current shot records. This may be done any time up to the morning of the No-School-Day the child will attend. This paperwork will only be necessary the first time your child attends No-School-Days in a given school year.
- Cost is $15 per child per day for those enrolled in a YMCA School Plus program and $25 per child per day for children not enrolled in School Plus.
- All fees must be paid at drop off.
