A new child care program will be opening early this summer at the former Chappelle Community School, an elementary school within the Ypsilanti Community Schools District at 111 South Wallace Boulevard, Ypsilanti, MI 48197.
The Collaborative – Ypsilanti YMCA Child Development Center will be licensed by the state of Michigan and will become NAEYC-accredited (National Association for the Education of the Young Child). The Center will be able to accommodate children ages 18 months to 5 years and is a collaboration between the Ann Arbor YMCA, Eastern Michigan University (EMU), Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) and the Ypsilanti Housing Commission (YHC).
Financial assistance will be available, and priority registration will be given to EMU students and those families living in Ypsilanti Housing Commission properties.
A grand opening celebration will be held on Monday June 11 from 4 – 6 p.m. at which time guests will be able to tour the facility and meet staff.
