Childcare available through YMCA, other agencies for healthcare workers, first responders
As part of the COVID-19 response effort, Scotia-Glenville is working with the Capital District YMCA to bring childcare resources to the families of emergency personnel in local communities. Starting Monday, March 23, 2020, YMCA branch locations throughout the Capital Region will be offering school-age childcare for emergency personnel (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, LPNs, nurse assistants, laboratory personnel, paramedics, EMTs, police officers, and employed firefighters).
Local school leaders are also working with the YMCA and other childcare providers to bring additional childcare options for emergency personnel to their school communities. Information regarding these options is forthcoming and updates will be posted on our website.
