  • June 19, 2019

    Information regarding After-School Care options for the 2019-2020 school year.

    YMCA Care at Vestal: 

    • If there are a minimum of 10 ACCESS students per day, the YMCA will be able to provide child care services at Vestal for ACCESS students for the 2019-20 school year. Please sign up with the Y by Monday, July 8. To register for Y childcare, you can find registration forms at the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette website. Please call the main office, 503-327-0007, with any registration or programming questions.
    • If there are fewer than 10 students registered, families will have the options below:
      • If you prefer to attend child care closer to home, first confirm that PPS provides a bus to the school. If that school is listed on the Student Transportation website, please reach out to the child care provider of your neighborhood school.

      • The YMCA will be holding four spots at its Tabor Heights location for ACCESS families in case there is not enough demand to run a program at Vestal school.

    • To explore other options, contact 211info. This agency holds the data base for all licensed and registered child care programs and can inform you if a child care provider has bus or van service.
