Now that school has begun, it’s not too late to sign up for our before and after school programs.

You’ve probably heard about our before- and after-school programs and thought that you didn’t need them. Then school started this week and you need help! No worries, it’s not too late! We still have available spots in both our Westfield and Ripley programs.

To sign up email Nichole Gollardt at

Since 1868, YWCA has provided early childcare programs, and today we are proud to serve over 200,000 kids annually through childcare, Head Start, and Pre-K programs. These programs promote child development and school readiness while enabling parents to obtain and retain employment.

From 7:00 am to 8:30 am and again from 2:30 (3:00 in Ripley) to 6:00 pm we offer physical and educational activities, team-building opportunities, homework assistance, and more.

In the morning program, your child will get a nutritious breakfast provided by the school, setting up your child for a more productive school day.

We believe that all families regardless of income should have access to systems of early care and education. We work with early childhood educators and families directly to ensure that this happens.
