The Clinton Herald

---- — CLINTON — The YWCA is currently taking registrations for the YWCA after-school program and Wednesdays at the YW for children in kindergarten through fifth grade.

The after-school program offers after-school care from 3 to 5:30 p.m. daily. This year’s focus will be on health and wellness. Children will learn about different aspects of good health including physical activity, self esteem and social activities.

Children are provided daily homework time, as well as opportunities for free choice activities.

Cost for the program is $30 per week for YWCA members and $35 for community members. Fees must be pre-paid and second party funding is accepted.

The program will be located at the Lyons campus located at 250 20th Ave. North on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Wednesdays at the YW will begin Aug. 21 and will run from 1 to 5:30 p.m. The cost for this program is $30 per month per child in the program. Wednesdays at the YW care is included in the fees for full week after-school programming. Wednesdays at the YW will be located at the YWCA downtown campus, 317 Seventh Ave. South in Clinton.

Both programs will begin at the YWCA downtown location. For the first six weeks, participants will have the opportunity to swim every Wednesday, so participants should have a suit and towel with your child.

Registration forms are available at the YWCA front desk, as well as online at www.ywcaclinton.org. Transportation to the YWCA must be arranged with the Clinton Community School District by calling the transportation department at 243-4441.
