WHAT IS YOUTH VILLAGE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM?
Our After School Program will be offered at our new facility. This program is for children in grades K-8th grade. We will be providing transportation from some elementary schools in Fort Walton Beach. There will be more information about tuition, transportation from schools, and when you can register your child for the program soon. Pre-register NOW below!
WHAT MAKES OUR AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
We limit our enrollment so that every child is known to the staff and volunteers and has his/her own special place in our hearts! We are not a “big-box” program but a “family-oriented,” “feel-good-and-safe” after school program and summer camp!
Youth Village is a non-profit organization where we care more about taking care of your child than being here to make money and it shows! When you entrust your child to us, we give them the same care and respect as we would our own children.
Youth Village has been a part of the community since 1999 and several of our original Youth Village students continue today as volunteers or staff members. We are truly a “family-oriented” after school program and summer camp!
WHAT ARE YOUR GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING THE KIDS’ RISKS DOWN FOR EXPOSURE TO COVID-19?
We are in the process of writing up guidelines and procedures to ensure that we open up our center as safely as possible. Some of our guidelines we will put into place include:
- All children and parents will be required to do a temperature check before entering the building.
- When parents drop their children off they will not be allowed to go past the foyer. A teacher will walk the child to their classroom.
- No child will switch classrooms. They will remain in their classroom for the day.
- Only one class at a time in our playgrounds. Teachers and staff will clean play equipment before the next class goes to the playground
- All classrooms will remain small and we will not be at full capacity until further notice.
Please keep in mind, this is not all of our guidelines, we will have more. Please fill out the pre-registration form on this page to receive weekly up-to-date information about our progress via our newsletter.
