Some relief is on the way for essential workers needing access to childcare.
The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is set to open the first licensed emergency child care centre for frontline workers in the county.
The YMCA has worked with the County of Simcoe, Public Health, Child Care Licensing, Barrie Fire, and Georgian College over the last few weeks in preparation for the centre.
Fiona Cascagnette, Vice President of Child and Family Development at the YMCA says the proper safeguards have been put in place to protect the children, their families, and staff.
The Centre will be located at Georgian College and open effective April 27.
Registration will be administered by the County of Simcoe.
