Kids' Korner es un lugar para que los niños exploren nuevos intereses, conozcan nuevos amigos, completen sus tareas, participen en un club de enriquecimiento, corran, jueguen y se diviertan.

Our twelve state-licensed programs are conveniently located in Middletown Public Elementary Schools, Gildersleeve in Portland (also serving Valley View and Brownstone), and Edna C. Stevens School and Woodside Intermediate School in Cromwell.

 

For more than 30 years, YMCA Kids' Korner has been working in partnership with parents and local school systems to assure that children are safe and are having fun in a supervised, enriching program before and after school hours.

Kids' Korner is much more than just a great child care program. It's a wonderful way to extend the school day by exploring new interests, enjoying healthy recreational pursuits, engaging in enrichment activities and benefiting from academic support. And all the while, kids are making friends and having fun under the supervision of well-trained youth development professionals. 

 

El personal de nuestros programas ha trabajado diligentemente durante el año pasado para hacer que el programa sea divertido y emocionante para los niños, al mismo tiempo que se enfoca en el desarrollo del carácter, el aprendizaje socioemocional y la curación del trauma del COVID-19. Entendemos que este año ha sido extremadamente difícil para los niños, por lo que nuestro enfoque seguirá estando en el crecimiento socioemocional y en ayudar a los niños a establecer conexiones con sus compañeros. ¡Nuestro personal ha recibido varias capacitaciones este año escolar sobre atención plena y atención informada sobre el trauma y está listo para hacer que el próximo año escolar sea incluso mejor que nunca!

Registration Steps for Kids’ Korner families:

​Please be sure to read through all steps below before you begin the process. 

  1. Select your child's site using blue buttons listed below. 

  2. On the next page, you will select "SIGN UP".On the next page, you will be prompted to select a membership type for Kids' Korner. All children who are enrolled in Kids' Korner are required to have a YMCA program membership to participate in Kids' Korner (most basic YMCA membership with daily fee's to use the facility). If you have one child you are registering, you will select "Program KK Youth Monthly", if you have more than one child, you will select "Program KK Family Monthly". These membership types are for children who are attending  either AM, PM or AM&PM (1-4 days a week). If your child is going to register and attend 5 days a week AM&PM, you will select "Program KK Comp", as the membership is complementary as your child is attending full time AM&PM 5 days per week. If at any time, the full time AM&PM schedule changes, you will be charged for the monthly membership. The membership fee's are $7/month for KK Youth monthly and $12/month for KK Family monthly that will be added to your monthly Kids' Korner charges. There is a one-time $10 enrollment fee due at the time of enrollment. 

  3. You will also be required to pay a two week deposit (equal to two weeks of Kids' Korner fees), within one week of online registration. The two week deposit is held on to until your LAST two weeks in the Kids' Korner program.    

  4. Once you have set up your YMCA membership account, you will click on "categories" and then select Kids' Korner. From there, you will choose the site/ school your child is going to attend. You will then register for the rate plan your child is going to attend. Ex, Full time PM, Part-time AM, Full time AM&PM. You will choose the rate plan and then on the next page select the person you are registering for the program. You will confirm this information and then you will be brought to the 2023-2024 Kids' Korner information page where you will enter your child's information. All fields must be filled in, or the registration will not be accepted. You will receive a confirmation email once you have  registered for your child/children's specific Kids' Korner Program. 

    • If you only receive confirmation that you are registered for the "Program KK Youth Monthly" that does NOT mean your child is registered. You must receive a separate confirmation email that ​​your child is registered for their specific Kids' Korner Program otherwise we will NOT be able to let them in to our programs. 

  5. In order for the registration to be completed, a credit card is required to be on the child's account. You will be charged the $10 enrollment fee at the time of registration. Automatic payments that are set up to the card can be cancelled after the YMCA receives confirmation of the registration.  If no card information is entered, the registration will NOT go through and your child will NOT be registered.

  6. An email will be sent to families with the amount of the two week security deposit amount that is due. This email will be sent within one week of registering online. Families will then log back into their account to pay those fees. Failure to pay the deposit within 48 hours of the email being sent will result in cancelation of your enrollment in the program. 

  7. You will have to repeat these steps for every child you are registering for Kids' Korner. 

  8. If you currently have an outstanding balance for any YMCA program you will be allowed to register for the 2023-2024 school year. However, all outstanding balances must be paid in full prior to June 15, 2023 or your registration will be cancelled at that time for the 2023-2024 school year.
