Fulton SACC Registration 2017-2018


The Fulton Family YMCA is excited to offer safe, fun and creative before and after school programming at our local elementary schools.

The YMCA is a non-profit organization that is 160 years old.  We have dedicated our practices to building strong child care programs and are the #1 child care provider in the nation.  This program provides convenience for working parents by offering care Monday – Friday from 7:00 am until 8:45 am and 3:15pm until 6:00 pm.  Our program assists in the continual socialization of your child.  It encourages children to participate in activities which will benefit them mentally, physically, and emotionally.  The children are given the opportunity to interact with one another and with adults.  The program will foster children’s personal growth and cultivate self confidence.  It provides time in their day when the emphasis is placed on the individual and how they can feel good about themselves.  It provides a warm and friendly experience for children.

With this program we hope to help out working parents as well as children. SACC will be offered at James E. Lanigan, and Volney.  On snow days and vacations from school, the program will be held at the Fulton YMCA. Call the YMCA for weekly and monthly rates.

There is a $25 registration fee for this program.  Registration is waved for Fulton Family YMCA family members.  PLEASE NOTE:  In order to insure that your payments are correctly applied to your account, payments may be made at the YMCA or by mail or phone with a charge card.

2017-2018 Preschool Registration


At the Y, we believe strengthening community starts with helping kids reach their potential. That’s why our preschool program helps children develop the building blocks they need to thrive in kindergarten.


Our programs are designed for children ages 3-4 1/2  years of age. You can register your child in person. It is on a first-come, first-served basis until the class is filled. At that time, a wait-list is started in the same fashion.
Fulton Family YMCA members can register for the 2016-2017 school year starting on March 16, 2016. All other registrations begin on March 22, 2016.

Birthday Parties



All of our birthday party packages include tablecloths, a happy birthday banner and streamers. We also have a party hostess that is available to assist with any party needs including cutting the cake, decorating, handing out presents or taking pictures.
If you are interested in booking a party the YMCA takes registration forms at our front desk. We need a 2 week notice to book your party and a 50% deposit down to secure your date. All of our party options are available on Saturday’s from 12:00pm-2:00pm and 2:30pm-4:30pm. Our Art and Standard parties are available on Saturday and Sunday’s. Our Sunday time slot is 12:00pm-2:00pm.

Our birthday parties are for members only.

Standard birthday parties are perfect if you are looking for just a room to be rented. This option allows two hours in our party space to have your games, presents and cake. This option allows up to 20 children.

Looking to have a splash party? Pool Parties are great for your child who loves to swim! The first hour of your party will be in our heated pool. In the pool you can play with our pool toys and basketball hoop. If your child is not able to swim they must wear a coastguard approved lifejacket or puddle jumper and be accompanied by an adult in the pool.

After you have an hour in the pool, you will have another hour in our party room where you can open presents and have cake. This option allows up to 20 children.

If you want a colorful birthday party an art party is the way to go! We have two options a canvas art party or a craft/messy art party.

Our canvas art party is an instructor led canvas painting. Canvases will be placed on easels and we will be using acrylic paint for our designs. Aprons will be provided to protect the clothes of your party guests!

Our craft or messy art party is based around your theme of your party as well as the age of the children. Crafts can vary to a simple project or to something more in depth. We can also have messy play with shaving cream, paint and sensory bins!

Both art party options are completely customizable and includes all the art supplies for the projects as well as an experienced art instructor. This options allows for up to 10 children.

If you love sports or gym games this is the party for you! We offer a variety of sports for our parties including, basketball, soccer, dodgeball, pickle ball, broomball, kickball and more! Pick your favorite sports theme and we will provide you with the gymnasium and a referee specific to that sport!
After you have an hour in the gymnasium, you will have another hour in our party room where you can open presents and have cake. This option allows up to 20 children.

Do you want face painting at your birthday party? You can add a face painter to any party option you choose. Our face painter uses high quality face paint and does full face options. This add on needs to be registered for 2 weeks prior to the party.
