					      Spotsylvania School Age Child Care
                                   Program (SACC)



The SACC Program is a before and after school program that is offered through the YMCA.  Every
day, we will participate in a variety of activities that include: arts and crafts, physical games, Kidz Lit (a
literature program with many different activities that involve different books), science activities,
homework time, community service, and character development. We teach life skills based on our four
core YMCA character traits of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. Children are taught the value
of healthy eating and fitness and engage in social projects to help the needy. Our center based activities
allow the child to choose what they want to do and are changed regularly! Our staff to child ratio for
state licensing is 1 to 18; however at the YMCA we do our best to have our ratio at 1 staff member to
every 14 kids!

We will be servicing the following schools: Battlefield, Berkeley, Brock Road, Chancellor, Courthouse
Road, Cedar Forest, Courtland, Harrison Road, Lee Hill, Livingston, Parkside, Riverview, Robert E. Lee,
Salem, Smith Station, Spotswood, and Wilderness Elementary Schools!

We offer Snack!

A healthy snack is provided each afternoon! Children may bring their own snack but please remember
we are a PEANUT FREE ZONE! We do not provide breakfast but children may bring their own or
purchase breakfast from the school cafeteria when they arrive at school!

Our YMCA Staff!

Each of our Managers, Program Leaders, and Counselors participates not only in mandated training
hours but take pride in extra training to help them improve their professional expertise. These

Lit and SPARKS, Child Abuse Prevention, School-Age Development, Health Safety and Emergency
Action Plans, School-Age Programming, and First Aid & CPR.
