The Fisher Family

Marisa and Eric were career novices and living in downtown Jamestown when their son, Elias, was born. A paramedic at the time, Marisa worked odd shifts. Eric worked more regular hours and was able to walk to work. When Elias was 18 months old, they looked to the YWCA for childcare. The Fourth Street location was perfect. As Marisa recalls, they loved the staff and had such a good experience, they later enrolled Oliver, now 6, and Adeline, now 5.

Marisa adds, “We liked that it wasn’t just a daycare, but a learning environment, and the teachers were great. The kids also loved the gym and activities.”
