The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago will offer full-day education and child care to families needing assistance in the event in-person instruction and remote learning are not available to Chicago students. The YMCA’s six-city locations are ready to help parents keep their kids learning, engaged—and, most importantly safe. The program is typically provided throughout the year on days when school is not in session but when parents still need to work, such as on state and federal holidays. School Days Out is open to children 5 – 12 years of age from 7 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Students will need to pack their own breakfast, lunch, and snacks as meal services will not be provided due to health and safety concerns during the pandemic.  Rates vary depending on location and start at $40 a day for members. Parents are encouraged to call their closest Y center for rates and to register. Financial assistance is available in some situations and families are advised to ask for more details at the time of registration.
