Child Development Services

The YWCA operates the Grace M. Pollock Child Development Center at our building in Allison Hill, which provides care for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. Additionally, the Child Development program provides before and after school care for children up to 12 years of age. The facility is fully licensed and is part of the STARS program (a standardized, state-administered quality assurance program). The YWCA also runs a summer camp in Fishing Creek Valley for children ages 5 to 12.
