Nurturing Children

A- A A+

YWCA’s Childcare Programs help women and families thrive by providing care and education for their children.

Access to childcare is the biggest barrier to women’s economic security.  Without childcare, many new mothers can’t return to work. Even in two-parent households, the lack of childcare reduces the earning power of that family by half. Research also shows that high-quality early education is the best long-term investment to make in a child; preparing them for success in elementary school and beyond. In support of local children and families, we are committed to offering high-quality childcare programs at the YWCA.

Due to inclement weather, YWCA of Asheville will be on a 2-hour delay on  Thursday, November 15th. The building and all programs, including the Fitness Center, Aquatics, Early Learning Program, and Empowerment Child Care, will open at 9:30 am. Please note that this means that ELP will NOT serve breakfast. Please check back here frequently for possible updates and changes, and please stay safe and warm out there!
