Pre-K Counts!

Attention: Adams County Families!

The YWCA Gettysburg and Adams County is pleased to announce we have been awarded a grant to implement two Pre-K Counts classrooms for the 2021-22 fiscal year! There will be one classroom at each YWCA Child Enrichment Program facility: 909 Fairfield Road and Adams Commerce Center, located at 50 Expedition Trail. There are a total of 36 slots available to families making below 300% of the poverty level with children 3 to 5 years of age. Before- and after-school care may be available also for families who need the additional service.
