DAYTON-YWCA Walla Walla held an open house on Saturday, March 16, inviting families from Dayton, Waitsburg, and neighboring areas to tour the new childcare center, RoseMary's Place, located in Dayton, Columbia County.

Parents had the opportunity to explore the center, meet the staff, and learn more about the high-quality childcare services for children aged six weeks to six years.

RoseMary's Place, housed in the renovated Booker Rest Home on the Columbia County Health System (CCHS) campus, is the result of a collaborative effort between CCHS and YWCA. Thanks to the support of YWCA community partners -- Sherwood Trust, Wildhorse Foundation, Columbia REA, the Blue Mountain Community Foundation's Warren Community Action Fund, Innovia Foundation and the Columbia County Children's Fund, and BMCF's Dayton/Columbia County Washington Fund -- the YWCA has been working to equip, furnish, and staff the center to provide a nurturing environment for children to learn and grow.

"Our goal is to provide the tools and resources children need to thrive," said Tabitha Haney, YWCA Director of Childcare. "From safe cribs for infants to a reading corner for preschoolers, every aspect of RoseMary's Place has been carefully designed to support early childhood development."

The center is scheduled to begin operations on April 1.
