Cancellation Policy
If a parent wishes to cancel any month or week of After School Academy, a Two (2) Week advance written notice is required. No refunds or credits will be issued for requests not meeting the 2 Week notice and the monthly/weekly balance will be considered due. Please email our Member Account Service team at childcare@ymcabham.org to submit cancellations.
Due to limited capacity, the Y requires continuous registration for the entire School Year to maintain a spot in the program. The YMCA is not able to accommodate requests for temporary breaks in service/payment during the school year.  Requests to cancel a service period of After School Care will result in the cancellation of all future service periods/months remaining in the school year beyond to the 2-week required notification. If parents choose to cancel under these terms,  they may re-register when they are ready to return to the program as space allows.
