I Need Childcare

Who we help

C4 services are available to the residents of Augusta County and the cities of Staunton and Waynesboro with elementary-age children in need of care in a supportive learning environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of C4 is to meet the demand for student support centers and make them accessible and affordable for all who need it.

C4 Rates:

C4 rates are determined by income and can be as low as $3/per day or a maximum of $30/per day, per child. Second child discounts apply. Ask your partner YMCA for details.

Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, there are Phase III Guidelines we are following for Childcare and Workplace Regulations For Staff. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Group size limit is 12 (including staff) for children under 4 years old provided age-based adult: child ratios are followed.
  • For children age four and above, including school-age children up to age 13, group size maximum is 22 (including staff) as long as social distancing of six feet apart is maintained. Age-based adult: child ratios must be followed.
  • Groups of children may share the same physical space (e.g. classroom, gymnasium) so long as social distancing of six feet can be maintained and children do not mix between groups.
  • Groups of children can play outside at the same time if social distancing of 6 feet apart is maintained and children do not mix between groups. Maintain an overall limit of 50 people for all outdoor activities and recess.
