Emergency Child Care

To assist essential hospital staff working to respond to COVID-19 in our community, the YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas opened emergency child care. In addition, the Y is responding to Governor Northam’s request to serve other essential personnel critical to providing required services in the Commonwealth.

Governor Northam asked child care providers to prioritize services for children of essential personnel while asking all families to keep their children home if they can.

The Y is a trusted provider of quality child care and can step in to meet the temporary need of our health care and essential workers whose regular child care may no longer be available.

Registration is open to essential staff as shown here. Those registering should be identified by their supervisor as needing child care so they can work their shift. Y staff will be present at the sites below to help those needing to register their children.

Please note: Once the application has been filled out, you will be receiving a call from our Child Care team to complete your registration. Registering does not guarantee child care until a member of our team has confirmed a spot.
