WMFC Children's Programs Handbook

WMFC Summer Program

West Midland Family Center provides a high-quality, affordable, state licensed summer program. Children who have completed preschool through 8th grade, are invited to join us each summer for an exciting experience filled with nature and outdoor activities, recreation, swimming and learning through S.T.E.M.(Science, Technology,Engineering, Math). S.T.E.M. introduces children to concepts and techniques that help them to comprehend new skills through creative and stimulating experiences. (There are volunteer opportunities for high school students, as well.)

The WMFC Summer Program begins in June and meets each week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for approximately 6 weeks throughout the summer. Families interested in the WMFC Summer Program must complete and submit a WMFC Summer Program Interest Form. Interest forms are available at the WMFC Welcome Center. Scholarships are available for all families. Limited transportation services are provided to and from summer program only (10 a.m. - 3 p.m.). A specific route is available at WMFC Welcome Center.

In addition to the daytime summer program for children, WMFC also offers fun family activities and parent education opportunities throughout the week. Activities include family fun nights, parent education groups, playgroups and other offerings all designed with our families in mind.

BEFORE and AFTER care is also available. Cost is $5.00/child for each session. For questions regarding the WMFC Summer Program, please call the Welcome Center at (989) 832-3256. Please contact Jillian Westphal, Childcare Supervisor at (989) 832-3256 or westphalj@wmfc.org, to pre-register for the before and after care.

WMFC After School Program (ASP)

WMFC is the place to be after school for students in grades K-12! Bullock Creek Public Schools provides daily bus transportation for students from Floyd Elementary School to the Center so that they can participate in a number of great after school activities.

Once students arrive at the Center, they can participate in a variety of activities some of which include crafts, recreation, computer lab time, and guest speakers! Special guests from area agencies are frequent visitors to our program. They provide fun, educational opportunities and unique experiences for ASP students. In addition, children are taught positive action lessons which are designed to develop and instill positive social behaviors, such as non- bullying and playing fair!

WMFC strongly believes that education should not end at school. As a result, ASP students have a time each day that is specifically set aside for homework and assisted reading. If a child needs extra help or assistance in their school work, WMFC staff members are proactive in finding the help that is needed.

West Midland Family Center offers scholarships to qualifying families. This is determined during enrollment. Parents and guardians will need to provide one month family gross income in order to be considered for scholarship monies. Please contact Jillian Westphal at (989) 832-3256 or westphalj@wmfc.org for additional information.

WMFC Childcare

Welcome to our WMFC childcare family. We are a licensed onsite childcare center where your child is welcomed as an individual and will be encouraged to continue to develop his/her individuality. We provide a planned program that we believe is developmentally sound and educational.

WMFC is the perfect place for working parents to access affordable, high quality, state licensed care for their children. Child care is available year round for children ages 6 weeks-12 years. The childcare program operates Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Please contact Jillian Westphal at (989) 832-3256 or westphalj@wmfc.org for additional information.
