Child Enrichment Program (CEP)

About the JCPS/YMCA Child Enrichment Program

The JCPS/YMCA Child Enrichment Program (CEP) provides before- and after-school care for JCPS students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Children participate in activities that promote creativity, teamwork, and core values in a safe and supportive environment. The program focuses on literacy, the arts, recreation, science, academic support, fitness, character development, and asset building.

In addition to planned activities and programs, each child receives healthy morning and afternoon snacks. Breakfast is served to children in the before-school program.

Regular Program Hours

Before- and After-School Sites: 7 a.m.–6 p.m.

After-School Sites Only: Dismissal–6:00 p.m.

Continuous Care Hours

7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at select locations when school is not in session. Spring Break, Winter Break, and summer programs require separate registration. Site locations may vary due to consolidation; transportation to and from the CEP site is the parent's responsibility.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

If, for any reason, you are unable to attend a week for which you are registered, please notify our office one week before the start of the session in order to stop the upcoming draft payment. If you do not contact our office in advance, no refund or credit will be available. If your child attends a different session than what you registered for, you will be charged an overage on your next draft.

The Y is for everyone and we offer income-based financial assistance. We also accept 3-C and other third-party subsidy reimbursements. Valid contracts must be on file with our office prior to the first day of attendance. Y financial assistance may not be available in combination with other child care subsidies.
