Childcare for Essential Personnel

As we move towards the completion of the school year and look towards the summer, we know that some of you may still struggle with having access to quality child care.

Please be aware that New York State provides a Capital District Child Care Coordinating Council as a resource for essential workers, to secure child care during the summer months. They can be reached at: (518)-426-7181 or www.cdcccc.org


In addition to the council, the Malta YMCA offers full day child care through the summer months. They can be reached at: (518)-583-4342, ext. 173.


The Saratoga Springs and Wilton YMCA also provide summer childcare. For more information please contact Maureen Fay at: 9518)-583-9622, ext.1148 or Maureen.fay@srymca.org
