YSS Kids Club Opens in Colo-Nesco School District

YSS cut the ribbon on its ninth Kids Club location on Tuesday night at the Colo-Nesco Middle/High School.

“It’s been a year’s worth of planning and pulling things together and we’re really excited today to kick this thing off” Superintendent/Elementary Principal Marc Snavely said.

YSS Kids Club program offers a safe, enriching place for over 600 children (grades K-6) with nine locations in eight districts for Ballard, Boone, Colo-Nesco, Gilbert, Madrid, Ogden, Roland-Story, and United.

Licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS), YSS Kids Club provides children with a safe and stimulating environment before/after school and during no-school days.

The Story County Board of Supervisors allocated $50,000 to the project for start-up costs for the first two years.

Snavely is passionate about the project, knowing how important childcare can be for both the kids and parents, and is excited to bring YSS Kids Club to the district.

“My wife and I don’t know what we would’ve done without before- and after-school care,” Snavely said. “It was a lifesaver for us.”

After the ribbon cutting, kids and parents were able to see the YSS Kids Club room, play games, try out some of the toys, and have pizza.
