This is a visualization exercise for parents. Picture your family budget. Zoom in on the childcare section. Phew. Kids are expensive, right? Zoom in a little more on After School care. This necessary expense adds up over the course of the school year. 

But what if we told you it doesn’t have to be like this? What if we told you how you can save $104 or more on after school care and enjoy all the benefits of a family membership to the Y.

It’s so easy: Join the Y

Mathematical breakdown*

Membership type Monthly Membership Dues Afterschool weekly rate Total Monthly cost (1 child) Total annual cost (1 child) Total Savings (1 child) Total annual cost (2 children) Total savings
(2 children)
Family (Caine Halter) $80 $57 $308 $3,126 $104 $5,292 $1,168
Single Parent Family (Caine Halter) $66 $57 $293 $2,946 $284 $5,112 $1,348
Non-Member N/A $85 $340 $3,230 $0 $6,460 $0

As you can see, parents who belong to the Y get a break on their after school rates AND they get all the great things that the Y has to offer, such as finding some “me time” in a group exercise class, going for a jog in any weather in our state of the art wellness facilities, swimming as a family in our pools, and having a free baby sitter for a night out with the Parents’ Night Out program. The list goes on! And if you have 2 kids in after school? You can’t afford not to be a Y member!

Ready to sign up, ensure your child is in good hands after the school day, get in the best shape of your life, AND save money doing it? Request more information about Y membership or Y after school programs
