YWCA Northeast Kansas Continues to Deliver Quality, Affordable Childcare amid Covid-19

TOPEKA – With essential businesses still open and schools closed, some parents are searching for daytime childcare. YWCA Northeast Kansas is working to meet the greater Topeka community’s crucial needs for childcare in their Early Learning Center (ELC).
“Understanding and responding to community needs is just who we are as an organization,” CEO Kathleen Marker said, “Even though our world seems to be filled with unknowns, YWCA Northeast Kansas is rising to the challenge of adapting our programs and services to continue supporting families in our community.”
Marker said they currently have spots available for at least 10 children, ages 1 and walking through pre-kindergarten, in their facility at 12th and VanBuren. The YWCA Early Learning Center is open Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. with tuition costing between $130 and $160 each week.
“Childcare should not be a concern at this moment in time when folks are needed to take care of the rest of us. YWCA is on a mission to improve access to quality, affordable, and accessible early childhood programs,” Marker said.
Marker also mentioned that normal sources of revenue are not coming in due to COVID-19, therefore donations are important right now. To learn more about how to support YWCA Northeast Kansas and a list of their current needs, visit https://www.ywcaneks.org/get-involved/.
