YMCA child care registration to start

The Ventura Family YMCA will offer its Kindergarten Care Program this school year at Loma Vista and Rio Del Norte schools.

Kindergarten Care at Loma Vista School in Ventura will provide care for children during the school week, from 11:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. At Rio Del Norte School in Oxnard, the hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The curriculum for Kindergarten Care will tie in with the Healthy Kids and Character Counts! programs, which introduce children to the YMCA's six pillars of character development: caring, respect, responsibility, honesty, trustworthiness and citizenship.

Registration will start Monday. Registration packets, parent handbooks and schedules will be available at the Ventura Family YMCA and online at http://www.venturaymca.org.

The Ventura Family YMCA offers several payment options to fit the needs of families. Scholarships are available. For more information, call Jake Munyon at 642-2131, ext 16.
