School Age Child Care

The YWCA Elgin School Age Child Care (SACC) program offers top of the line care to children in grades Kindergarten through fifth, at an affordable price (fees are based on a sliding scale from the Department of Human Services).

In addition to being affordable, we have made it our goal is to provide our students with engaging activities, a home away from home, and caring/qualified staff. The School Age Child Care teachers dedicate themselves to the children they serve and respect them as individuals. Our program’s activities are chosen for their ability to enhance each child’s learning experience, while giving them the opportunity to learn how to interact with other children and adults.Our teachers work closely with our student’s parents to make sure their child is happy in our program.

Our program includes:

  • transportation from most schools in Elgin to our facility
  • an afternoon snack
  • homework help
  • hands on learning activities


  • gym time
  • special clubs, such as Girl Scouts and Comic Book Club
  • volunteer opportunities

During the summer months the children will get a morning snack and be able to go on weekly field trips.

Our program is completely full at this time. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list please click the button below.
