CHICAGO (CBS) — The YMCA of Metro Chicago says it’s prepared to help working parents with day care during the one-day Chicago Teachers Union strike, reports WBBM’s Keith Johnson.

DaWanna Williamson, senior VP of youth development for YMCA Metro Chicago, says they’ve been preparing for this day.

“Probably around November, maybe even in October,” she said.

Space is limited, but Williamson says there will be plenty of structured activities.

“We will have activities to keep them engaged during this time while they’re out of school,” she said.
