Saint Michael’s Hospital YMCA Drop-In Child Care Extends Hours
January 13, 2009
The YMCA staffed, child care center at Saint Michael’s Hospital & Ministry Medical Group, located at 900 Illinois Ave announced the extension of service hours. Beginning in January the Drop-In Child Care is available for infants and children up to 11 years of age Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and again from 2 to 4 pm. There is a limit of 12 children at any one time and is run on a first come, first served basis – no appointment necessary.
The Drop-In Child Care program began in 2005 and was designed to provide a safe and secure environment for the children of patients and visitors at Saint Michael’s Hospital and Ministry Medical Group. Children are able to play with toys and other children under the care of trained YMCA staff while their guardians and parents attend medical appointments without the worry of child care. In 2008 the center provided care for over 900 children, totaling over 1,000 hours of child care.
