Ann Arbor YMCA To Expand Programming To Meet Daycare Demand During COVID-19

Aug 18, 2020

The Ann Arbor YMCA is expanding its school-age programming to meet the daycare demand during COVID-19.  

On September 14th, the Y will launch an in-person childcare program for kindergarten to third grade students who will be learning virtually this fall because of COVID-19.  Toni Kayumi is the president of the Ann Arbor YMCA and explains who qualifies to enroll their child in the program.   

Toni Kayumi: Those individuals who aren’t working from home, who, therefore, need a place for their child to be because they won’t be able to take care of their child.

The Y also plans to launch a similar child care program for older school-age children this fall.  For details, visit the Y’s website.
