YMCA opens up childcare facilities to families of first responders

Starting Monday, the Door County YMCA will be opening up the Barker early childcare facility and its Lansing Avenue location exclusively for families of those on the frontlines in the current health emergency. Between the two sites, care can be provided for infants up to fifth-grade schoolchildren. Each center is open from 5:30 AM to 5:45 PM. Executive Director Tom Beerntsen explains who is eligible for the program.


The Door County YMCA and the childcare centers remain closed to the general public until the health emergency has been lifted.
