EMERGENCY CHILD CARE - COVID 19

HERE FOR YOU.  EMERGENCY CHILDCARE IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves, the safety of the children in our care and our employees is paramount. We assure you that we are closely monitoring the situation, and will follow recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alabama Department of Public Health (DPH).  
 
In an effort to protect the health and wellness of your child and slow the spread of the virus, we recommend that you keep your child home during this time. However, we realize that not all families have the ability to stay home with their children. We are happy to announce that our Emergency Care for Essential Workers is now expanding and open to all Working Families.
 
Beginning June 1, we will expand our current Emergency Childcare Program through June 12, to include the following YMCA locations:  Alabaster, Greystone, Hoover, Pelham, Shades Valley, Trussville and the Youth Center (downtown).
