Lynchburg's Downtown YMCA Closing Preschool Program

Lynchburg, VA - According to the YMCA's CEO, the Downtown Lynchburg YMCA will be closing its preschool program.

According to the YMCA leader, the program was hardly making money due to a drop in enrollment, as well as new burdensome state licensing regulations.

YMCA officials told parents and teachers about the news last week.

The CEO says they're looking at employing the preschool's eight staff members in other capacities within the YMCA. They're also helping parents find new preschools for their children.

The program has been at the Downtown YMCA since 1996.
