ARE YOU IN NEED OF SAFE, QUALITY AFTERCARE FOR YOUR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD?
 

ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR A LOCATION, CONVENIENT TO THE SCHOOL YOUR CHILD
ATTENDS?
 

I am a parent of a child who receives special education services in
Gwinnett County Public School System.  Currently, I am collaborating with
Nesbit Elementary (my child's school) and the YMCA that provides their
after school program, to begin serving students with special needs.  This
effort will be a pilot program, with hopes of expanding to other schools at
all levels (Elem, Middle, HS).
This program would be an addition to the existing YMCA after school program
currently in place at Nesbit.
 

The goal of this initial program is to create a safe after school
environment with specially trained caregivers to support our children's
additional needs in toileting, feeding, and more focused care (lower
teacher/student ratios).
 

To best support the start of this initiative, we need to show the need (how
many students would be enrolled to make this financially feasible)
 

If you need or have interest in this resource, want to be a part of this
project, or have questions/suggestions, please contact me at:

I am excited about making this happen in Gwinnett County and look forward
to hearing from you.
 

Thank you,
Jenn Looper
