The YMCA of West San Gabriel Valley will open for the purpose of essential child care — limited to 18 children from age 4 to eighth grade — from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 pm. beginning May 18, Monday through Friday. The Y will remain closed to the public.
The Y’s summer children’s activities at the 410 E. Corto St. location in Alhambra will adhere to strict social distancing rules and follow all guidelines set by the CDC and the L.A. County Department of Health.
Every member of the Y staff is trained and certified in CPR, first aid, child abuse prevention, and mental health. A licensed nurse on staff monitors daily entrance and exit temperature checks of each child and temperature checks throughout the day every three hours. In addition, the same daily staff assignment with children is assured, and mandatory face masks are worn. All staff is live scan fingerprinted.
Included in the activities permitted with all CDC protocols are virtual school support, homework assistance, educational enrichments, cooking class, exercise programs, games, arts and crafts, and social and recreational activities. The price of the program is not yet set.
For more than a century, through hard times, world wars, and other historical challenges, the youth programs of the YMCA of WSGV have provided the community with safe, fun, and engaging experiences for children that build positive character development, healthy lives, and lifetime memories.
