Do you have any suggestions about affordable childcare?
Answer: We understand many parents across our district must return to their place of business, which is complicated, as Asheville City Schools will begin the 2020-2021 school year with remote instruction. If you are having trouble searching for childcare, Buncombe County Partnership for Children has put together this helpful map of all licensed child care centers across our county. Additionally, please review these supportive community resources compiled by United Way.
Additionally, we've learned the Y will offer half-day afternoon programs at the Asheville YMCA and the Reuter Family YMCA from 1:30-5:30 p.m. The program will include recreation and physical activity. The cost is $95/week per child for non-YMCA members and $70/week for Y members. Financial assistance is available.
