Because of the evolving rules governing the coronavirus pandemic, the impact of school closures, and the growing demand on critical professionals, we are transitioning our Y childcare centers to support doctors, nurses, technicians, medical staff, and first responders with caring for their children during this crisis. They will not have to worry that their child is in a safe place, as they care for a growing number of our loved ones during this difficult time. 

Beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020, all YMCA of Coastal Georgia childcare programs will transition their focus on offering full-time childcare and holiday camps for critical workers only.

We are working directly with these agencies to share registration information and enroll participants.
