GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- The Greater Green Bay YMCA announced Thursday it is extending childcare to people designated as "essential workers" under the Governor's "stay at home" order.

“Due to the passing of Emergency Order No. 12, and the growing impact of this coronavirus pandemic, the demand on health care professionals and essential community personnel is greater than ever. We want to make sure those on the front lines in our community feel confident that their children are in a safe place, so they can continue to care for a growing number of our loved ones during this difficult time,” said YMCA President and CEO Sean Elliott. “Therefore, we have extended our West Side Y services to support essential community personnel in caring for their children during this crisis.”

Until further notice, the YMCA School-Age childcare team will extend the Kids’ Day Out child care program for children ages 5-12 to include the children of all essential personnel. If interested or in need of this program, please contact the school-age child care office at 920-436-9675.
