Children's Alley Volunteer Application

Thank you for choosing Children's Alley for your Community Service work. Though a lot of the day is spent playing with children, volunteers are also responsible for aiding the staff with day to day tasks. Volunteers may be asked to clean tables, floor and garbage cans, do laundry, pick up toys, make beds, prepare art projects, make copies, etc. Again, thank you for your hard work and dedication. Our volunteers are very important to us. The information on this sheet is confidential. Information below is used to assemble statistics for grants.

Children’s Alley Child Care Closed

On March 18, Governor Jared Polis signed an executive order suspending in-person learning in public and private schools across the state from March 23-April 17. In accordance with this, the YWCA is planning for Children’s Alley to remain closed until Monday, April 20. We will keep you updated weekly as we continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation.

It has been incredibly hard for us to temporarily close our doors knowing that this is creating additional strain on the families we serve and the children we love. While some childcare centers remain open, we are following safety recommendations from Colorado Public Health to close Children’s Alley. As a drop-in childcare center with different children every day, there is an increased risk of spreading COVID-19 and our highest priority has always been to provide quality care while keeping our staff and families healthy and safe.

We are committed to working through this time by identifying the most pressing needs of our community and creatively aligning resources and programming to address these pressing issues. We are staying up-to-date with Boulder County Public Health and will communicate our reopening as soon as it is a possibility.
