DAY CENTER FOR MILITARY CHILDREN AND VOLUNTEER FAMILIES
A free day center was opened in Lviv for children whose parents are fighting and volunteering. The center is organized by YMCA Lviv, which is engaged in volunteer, artistic and educational activities.
If you need to leave your child with someone for a few hours to deal with your affairs, a small and cozy “day care” is at your service, where animators will look after your children.
With us, children have fun with animators, play board games for the youngest and assemble constructors, draw and sculpt, get to know each other and have fun together. In a playful way, they learn the basics of safety: how to behave in nature, why you can’t talk to strangers or pick up incomprehensible objects, why you should go to a bomb shelter, how to call emergency services, etc. There is also a volunteer space in our building, where it will be convenient for you to work or arrange a meeting.
Important to know:
- we accept children from 4 to 7 years old;
- the child can stay with us for up to four hours;
- we do not provide food and daytime sleep;
- unfortunately, we cannot work with children with disabilities.
Our working hours: 10:00-18:00 from Monday to Friday.
We are located in Lviv city center, above the Ivan Franko Park, at the address of st. Technical, 1.
Among the participants of our organization there are servicemen and volunteers. We know how much time and effort it takes to get closer to victory, so we want to help. At least we can take care of the children while you work for a common cause.
! We want you to be as comfortable as possible, so we have made simple conditions for enrolling.
You can notify us even one hour before you arrive.
