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.


Contact Wardell Frazier at or (616) 855-1447.

Summer Camp

Registration is now open. Camp is held at the Wolverine Worldwide Family YMCA. Further information can be found here.


Half Day Policy

For future half days, we will be requiring parents to sign-up their child beginning 30 days in advance, and registration will close 2 weeks prior to the half day.


If your child attends North Oakview, East Oakview, or Highlands, please email Wardell Frazier ( confirming your half day registration.


If your child attends West Oaview, please email Hannah Thomas ( confirming your half day registration.

Daily Reminders

Because our programs involve outdoor activity, please send your students with adequate winter wear, including a coat, hat, and gloves.


To ensure the safety of the children in our programs, staff may request a photo ID to confirm the identity of any authorized pickup before releasing the child.
