YWCA holding open house event


LEWISTON — The YWCA, 130 East Ave., will hold a child care open house from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18. The YWCA provides child care for preschool children from 2 and one-half to 5 years old, and before- and after-school care is offered for school-age children from 5 to 12 years old. The before-care program is housed at the YWCA.

Before School is for children attending Martel or Farwell schools.

The YWCA offers one after-school program located at the YWCA for children attending Martel, Farwell, Montello, Geiger and McMahon schools. Students from Martel School stay at the school and have their after-school care there with a YWCA employee. The Open House will give people an opportunity to meet staff, tour the building and ask questions about programs.

Light refreshments will be served and there will be opportunities for children to explore the classrooms.
