YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – As classes wind down for the year for area school children, the city of Youngstown is gearing up for another summer of daycare activities to keep the kids occupied during the day.

The Youngstown Parks and Recreation Department’s 2014 daycare program, open to children of pre-school age through high school, will run from June 11 through Aug. 6 at several locations around the city.

Besides offering a wide range of games and other activities, there will be educational programing as well.

“We will also have some partnerships with the Ohio State University Extension service which will be bringing back a program about teaching kids how to eat more nutritiously. We will also have the Youngstown City Health District involved with a bullying and cyber bullying program,” said Youngstown Mayor John McNally.

Registration for programming at both Crandall and Homestead parks runs from June 2 through June 5 by calling Youngstown Parks and Recreation at 330-742-8711.
