Remote Learning Support

School Age Remote Learning Care and Support

The Dow Bay Area Family YMCA has provided multiple childcare opportunities in Bay County and the surrounding community for over 134 years. As an organization centered around Youth Development, we are dedicated to providing a safe environment where children can learn, grow, and thrive. Our YMCA after school program staff are facilitating remote learning and providing essential childcare for parents and families.

Providing Support

Staff will supervise school age children as they complete their online school work and provide educational assistance when applicable. Staff is not responsible for teaching or tutoring children their school material. Staff will also engage with children through Physical Activity and Play.

We are partnering with you to help our students succeed this year. We ask that you speak to your student each night, confirming that they completed or worked on their school work during the day. You may also ask your student what subjects they need help with and relay that information to us each morning, so that we can help support them in the ways that they need.
