COLORADO SPRINGS — The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region announced Thursday it is offering child care services to healthcare and human services providers, critical support staff, and emergency first responders.

Care for children ages 5-12 will be available Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Garden Ranch YMCA, located at 2380 Montebello Drive West in Colorado Springs.
