YWCA teaming with Western to operate Child Center


LA CROSSE, Wis. — Two local organizations are coming together to offer affordable child care in downtown La Crosse.

The YWCA of the Coulee Region is teaming with Western Technical College to operate the Western Child Center. Western had planned on closing the center at the end of the school year if another agency didn’t come forward.

The center will continue to serve as a clinical site for Early Childhood Education at Western and will be another way for the YWCA to serve the community.

“This offers the opportunity for us to help the public in a different way, in an important way but in a way that gives us a little bigger face and a bigger presence in the community,” said Mary Kay Wolf.

The Center will open August 22nd and will be located on the Western campus.
