The New Year will bring big changes at The Y at Duck Creek. Fifth Third Bank is moving forward with plans to transition the building into a childcare center for Fifth Third employees only. This means that the Y at Duck Creek will be relocated and merged with the nearby Blue Ash YMCA, located at 5000 YMCA Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242. The Y at Duck Creek Wellness Center will close on Friday, December 20, 2019.
The Y will continue to operate the Early Learning Center until February 28, 2020; after that date, Fifth Third’s new care provider will take over operations. Fifth Third has committed to offering childcare services through their provider through August 31, at no change in cost, for all who are currently enrolled at the Y. A parent meeting will be held at the Y at Duck Creek on Wednesday, November 20 at 6 p.m.; the Y and various childcare providers will be there to answer any questions you might have.
The Y is sorry for the inconvenience this situation could cause members, childcare families, staff and the community. We pledge to do everything possible to make this difficult situation as seamless as possible.
The Y remains committed to helping our friends achieve goals, make friends and find a true place of belonging.
