Child Care


 Northview Public Schools is excited to partner with the YMCA to provide expanded childcare offerings for our families.  Our new partnership with the YMCA enables us to host before and after school-year programs for grades K-6 directly at the East Oakview, North Oakview, and West Oakview buildings.  Summer child care is offered at the Wolverine YMCA in Belmont.

Students from Highlands Middle School can also be registered and will attend the West Oakview location.
