YWCA Child Care Program
The YWCA Child Care Program recognizes the benefits of quality care that keeps kids safe, engaged, and enriched. Childcare options & programs include, Pre-K/P4J at the YWCA, Before and After School Care at eleven Janesville schools and two Milton schools, Non-School Days, and Summer Discovery Day Camp.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides reimbursement to sponsoring organizations for nutritious snacks served to children enrolled in day care and to children in afterschool programs. CACFP guidelines require healthy, nutritious snacks and alternative options for documented allergies/intolerances. Plus, our snacks are included in the weekly fees.
