Y’s Time, Our after school child care sites participate in age appropriate activities. Each site has a scheduled swim day during the week at the Plattsburgh YMCA. The Y also provides snacks for all after school child care sites. Our school sites are all New York State registered and licensed.
Child Care Staff
Christina Santor is the Y’s Time After School Child Care Director. She administers all Before/After school programs, working closely with her staff, school administrators, parents and children. She started working at the Y in 2007, becoming the Director of Preschool in 2013. In addition, all staff are screened for caring, friendly and nurturing personalities. They must meet specific qualifications and Y standards in order to work with our kids.
The Y provides transportation for all Plattsburgh City school after care programming. The Y’s Time program also provides transportation for all morning care for the Oak Street School. On swim days, the Y bus will pick up and return all school program children for swimming. We may accommodate other transportation needs (check with the director). The Y bus drivers must go through a driver orientation and drive the bus prior to transporting the children.
