What can I do in advance to make sure all goes smoothly on registration day?

We recommend that families review all information in their parent portal to ensure all information is correct. If you are not able to log into your account, or if you have forgotten your password, please contact our office so we can update your login. Review all program options so you know what to sign up for on registration day. If you have additional children attending the program that are not currently in our database, contact our office so we can help you do that prior to registration day.

Once I finish the registration process, is my child confirmed to attend program?

No. Registering for a program does not mean you are confirmed to attend. You will receive confirmation that your registration was completed, but that is not a confirmation that your child is able to attend the program. You must receive a confirmation email along with a start date and additional program information. Typically, those emails start going out a month or two after registration. You can call our administrative office to see if a spot is being held for your child.

What browser and device should I use?

We recommend using the most recent version of Chrome, Safari, or Microsoft Edge on a desktop or laptop computer. A number of users have experienced issues using phones.
Back to top

How long does it take to register?

Please set aside at least 30 minutes to complete the process; registration may take longer when registering more than one child. Please be aware that after a period of inactivity (approximately 20 minutes), your registration may time-out and information will be lost.
Back to top

Is payment required to register my child?

Yes. Applicable fees and deposits are due at the time of registration. A bank-issued Visa or MasterCard credit/debit card must be provided to register.
Back to top

How do I know my registration was successful?

You will receive an automated email letting you know your registration has been received by our office. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, there may have been an error and your registration was not successful. You may need to re-register or contact our office at info@wisconsinyouthcompany.org. Please note this is not confirmation that your child is able to attend the program. That confirmation email will come at a later date.
Back to top

How do I know if my child is confirmed to attend the program?

Once we have finished processing your child’s registration, you will receive a confirmation email with your child’s start date as well as a welcome letter. You may also call our offices to check to see if a spot is being held for your child.

I registered as a new family, why can’t I see my parent portal yet?

New families to our system can take up to two business days to have your information accessible in the parent portal. Please contact us at info@wisconsinyouthcompany.org with more questions.

How do I edit my family or child information after I register?

For all information changes after initial registration, please email us at info@wisconsinyouthcompany.org or waukesha@wisconsinyouthcompany.org.

Why did my registration not work?
  • Your registration may have timed out. Please be aware that after a period of inactivity (approximately 20 minutes), your registration will time-out and all information will be lost.
  • We recommend using the most recent version of Chrome, Safari, or Microsoft Edge on a desktop or laptop computer. Most users have experienced issues using phones.
  • Make sure you do not use your browser’s back button
  • Your workplace may have a firewall in place preventing complete registration

How long will it take to process my registration?

It generally takes one to two weeks to fully process most registrations.  Any incomplete or incorrect information may delay your child’s start date; our office will contact you. If you register two weeks prior to the start of program, due to the high volume of registrations being processed at that time, it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate your requested start date if it is for the first week of program.
Back to top

Is there a deadline to register?

Due to administrative time needed to process registrations, all registrations must be received at least two weeks prior to the start of program. Only completed registrations received by this deadline will be processed and confirmed to begin the first day of program as space permits. We do not accept schedule changes, or withdrawal requests during this time period. Registrations received after this deadline will be processed as volume and capacity permit. If space in the program is not available, parents are contacted and offered a place on the waitlist. Parents who accept a place on the waitlist will be contacted if and when space becomes available.

Who can register?

Only parents and guardians may register a child.

How do I add a child through my parent portal?

To add a sibling through your parent portal account, you may need to contact the office so we can reset your account. If your program requires immunization records, you will need to edit your newly added child. The immunizations link will appear at the top of the child information edit screen.

It will be hard for my family to afford program fees. Is help available?

Yes. Tuition assistance is available for families. WYC offers scholarships based on individual family circumstances. If you believe paying program fees will be hard for your family, we encourage you to apply. Learn more here. Families who qualify can receive funding through external sources such as WI Shares and the City of Madison.

What information is required?
  • Child’s name, birthdate, age, gender, grade in fall, school attending in fall, parent(s)/guardian(s) with whom child resides, shirt size (summer only-except for MSU), relationship and contact information of parent/guardian account holder(s)/user(s) — including complete home address and phone numbers, as well as the best phone number and best address during program hours, which is the complete address where parent/guardian will be during program hours.
  • Mode of arrival to and departure from program (except for MSU participants, who must be authorized to arrive and depart independently). Note: If an independent arrival or departure is selected, an exact time must be given.
  • Contact information for at least one emergency contact person (required) and pick-up persons in addition to parents (optional, with a limit of four additional pick-up persons). Emergency contacts and authorized pick-up persons must be 18-years-old or older. An independent departure authorization must be given for a person under the age of 18 years of age to pick up. Emergency contacts need to be fluent enough in English to provide basic information and understand emergency information given to them by program staff. Note: Emergency contacts are contacted in an emergency only when the listed parents/guardians cannot be reached first. Required information for both emergency contacts and authorized pick-up persons is as follows: first and last name, complete home address, best phone number during program hours, and relationship to child.
  • Complete immunization dates (except for Middle School U programs) in the format of xx/xx/xxxx must be provided. State licensing regulations require that all enrolled children have received 4-DTaP, 4-Polio (IPV/OPV), 3-Hepatitis B, 2-MMR and 2-Varicella vaccinations and/or year of chicken pox disease, or an applicable waiver may be selected. Four-year-olds in Waukesha require an additional 3-Hib and 3-Pneumococcal (PCV), and only require 1-MMR and 1-Varicella. Note: Our online database DOES allow you to skip this section. If you DO NOT include this in your registration, it WILL delay the processing of your registration. You may find your child’s immunization records online at Wisconsin Immunization Registry.
  • Contact information for your child’s physician, including the doctor’s name and the full clinic address and phone number. Note: If you’re new to the area and have not yet found a new physician, we must have your prior physician and clinic information. We accept out-of-state and out-of-country information.
  • If your child has any specific health information, please provide details. Note: Do not skip over any questions in this section; indicate “yes” or “no” as applicable. A “yes’’ or “no” answer is required for all questions. Enter N/A in required text fields if not applicable. Select an authorization for both sunscreen and insect repellent application.
  • Select a swim permission authorization and include any information needed to document your child’s swimming abilities (summer only). Note: Wander Wisconsin programs require a minimum swim level yellow; select Middle School U programs require a minimum swim level yellow or green. Please refer to program and swim level information.

What is the withdrawal & schedule change policy?

Requests for schedule change or withdrawal of enrollment must be received in writing (email is sufficient) by the administrative office by the end of the business day Friday (5:30 p.m.) six business days prior to the start of a new billing period (or the start of each weekly program for summer programming). Effective dates of schedule changes must coincide with the start of billing periods. Requests to increase schedule mid-billing cycle will be accommodated with added days on a space-available basis until the next billing cycle begins. Fee adjustments will not be made for a schedule reduction in days occurring mid-billing cycle. Three schedule changes are granted per school year at no additional cost. The fourth and subsequent schedule changes will be made for $5 per change processed. For exact dates, please see the payment schedule on your specific school year program page. Your fees and payment schedule are located under the Fees & Payments tab.
