Door County Y considering closure of the Barker Childcare Center

Last week at a meeting of the Door County YMCA’s Board of Directors, serious consideration was given to closing the Barker Childcare Center on Egg Harbor Road this September. The situation remains in flux as community support is being sought to help keep the Sturgeon Bay facility running. Annual Campaign Director Alyssa Dantoin says daycare has not been a boon to the bottom line for the Y historically. Still, strong results from general operations have allowed the Barker Center to continue to function. Due to challenges related to COVID-19, the safety net no longer exists.


Dantoin says the Door County YMCA is seeing roughly 20 percent of regular traffic since reopening and patience will be required until all members feel comfortable returning.
