Before and After Care

As a service to our parents, the YMCA offers a Before Care and After Care Program at ICES. This is the only Before and After Care Program offered at the elementary school.

Before Care

Before Care begins at 6:30 a.m. (Please note: students should never be dropped off at the school campus prior to 6:30 a.m. and left unattended.) Before Care concludes at 7:30 a.m. Students who arrive from 7:30 – 7:45 a.m. report to the gym. Breakfast (which includes an entree, milk, and juice) is served by Aramark, the ICS lunch vendor, between 7 – 7:45 a.m.

After Care

The After Care Program’s daily schedule runs from 3:15 – 6 p.m. Students who attend After Care may come to the gym at 3:15 p.m. Any students remaining at school after 3:15 p.m. will need to attend the YMCA After Care program. Any students that are not registered or are not permitted to attend the YMCA After Care Program may be considered abandoned and appropriate measures will be taken. A free dinner provided by the YMCA will be served after 3:15 p.m.

Children must be picked up by 6 p.m. Parents who do not pick up their child/children by 6 p.m. may be subject to an additional charge. As well, should a child be left at ICES beyond 6:30 p.m. without any contact from a parent, the child will be considered abandoned and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be contacted.

The YMCA’s Before and After Care rates are solely determined and managed by the YMCA. Financial assistance is available to families that qualify.
