Temporary Daycare at the Old Barn
The Old Barn Community Centre has transformed some of its space into a temporary, full-day daycare, which opened this week. This childcare service is for those who need it most, with priority given to children whose parents perform essential services during the pandemic. Operated by the YMCA, the daycare is open Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The YMCA considers the health and well-being of children, families and staff as a top priority. From the onset of COVID-19 in our province, the YMCA has been committed to continuing to provide child care to families as long it was feasible and aligned with the recommendations of the government agencies.
As its child care programs continue to operate, the YMCA is carrying out the following enhanced health measures in compliance with public health:
The temporary YMCA daycare will be open until public school resumes or there is a provincial directive to close all daycare services.
The UNA is pleased to be able to support our community and its residents in as many ways as we can during these extraordinary times.
