Before & After School Care | Youth Development | Lakeland Hills Family YMCA

School Age Childcare

With the school year starting in New Jersey amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the state announced plans to dedicate $250 million in funding from the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund, which will provide additional support to children and their families as well as for thousands of child care providers with resources.

School-Age Tuition Assistance Program

The New Jersey School-Age Tuition Assistance Program can help you pay for care for your school-age child in need of child care as a result of COVID-19 remote learning schools schedules. To be eligible for this assistance, you must be:

  • a NJ resident;
  • your child must be attending school remotely, either part-time or full-time; and
  • your annual gross household income must be $150,000 or less.

Note, the income cap was increased from $75,000 to $150,000 on October 1. If you previously applied for tuition assistance and were denied because of income, someone will be reaching out to you shortly. 

The Lakeland Hills Family YMCA is open for registration for any student in any school who wishes to participate in an educational and recreational program. This all-day program will aid in supervised schoolwork while having meaningful social interactions. With programming designed to support your child’s new schedule, you can have peace of mind knowing your child is in a safe, engaging, and structured environment that will set them up for success both in and out of the classroom. Group spaces will be socially distant and face coverings are required.
