As the landscape of learning continues to change, YWCA Lower Cape Fear remains committed to providing innovative solutions to safe child care and learning opportunities for working families.
As area schools adjust calendars, YWCA Lower Cape Fear will adjust our programming in order to help children continue to learn, grow, and thrive. We will continue to provide a safe and nurturing environment and take every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our children, staff, and members.
In addition to providing time for learning and meals YWCA Lower Cape Fear offer strong social and emotional support as children navigate these dynamic times. Kids will continue to engage in educational and imaginative activities, play sports and games outside, and have free time to rest and practice self care.
