Preschool/Kinder Camp

Camp
Ages 6 weeks to 5

UPDATE FOR SUMMER 2021 - Unfortunately, the YMCA of Austin is not able to offer regular Kinder Camp for ages 4-5 this summer due to complications from COVID-19. If your child is aged 6 weeks to 5 years, we are offering Infant/Preschool Camp options. See below for Summer Infant/Preschool Childcare information. 

If your camper is 5-13 years old, please consider Theme Camp (ages 5-12), Sports Camp (ages 8-13), or YMCA Camp Moody (ages 8-13).

Creativity starts here! 

Campers benefit from an afternoon quiet/nap period as well as lower camper-to-staff ratios. Campers enjoy changing weekly themes. Y programs meet children’s individual needs by offering cognitively, socially, and physically enriching curricula. Activities include building blocks and construction, dramatic play, reading, science and math, arts & crafts, creative expression, outdoor play, games and puzzles, and much more!

  • All EAC YMCA Preschool/Infant programs follow guidelines and curriculum for Texas Rising Star, Texas School Ready and Big Day Scholastic. All Extend-A-Care YMCA Infant/Preschool programs officially have a recognized high-quality accreditation from Texas Rising Star. We are dedicated to meeting the highest level of recognition for each program. *Any program 2 years or newer is finalizing the process.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS 

Current YMCA safety protocols in place include the practices below. COVID guidelines are subject to change. We will continue to follow advice by public health officials:

  • Smaller ratios are maintained per state guidelines and CDC recommendations
  • 3 ft. social distancing adherence
  • Frequent hand washing 
  • Facility deep cleaned daily with hourly wipe downs
  • Temperature checks prior to entry
  • Drop-off / Pick-up outside facility
  • Children showing signs of illness will be separated and parents will be called for pickup
  • Masks HIGHLY recommended and encouraged for all children and staff, but no longer mandatory
  • DOMESTIC TRAVEL QUARANTINE GUIDENCE:  EAC Y strongly encourage children have a 3-5 day quarantine upon returning from domestic travel.
  •  INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL: EAC Y requires a 2-week quarantine or a negative test after 3-5 days upon return from travel for any child who travels internationally.  

Due to the May 18th Governor’s Executive Order prohibiting governmental entities – including public schools - in Texas from requiring or mandating mask wearing after June 4th, EAC YMCA programs will comply per district policy as of June 7th.  

EACY staff will adjust schedules, where possible, to relocate more activities outside. These policies are in place because children under 12 are not yet eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination. These policies are subject to change due to new recommendations and district requirements.
