CINCINNATI (FOX19) - With most students out of school all week due to the extreme cold weather and record snowfall, local YMCAs are proving to be a good alternative for parents scrambling to find daycare.

The busiest Y all week has been the location in Burlington, where the schools day-out program is averaging 50 students daily.

Staff has been on standby and opening at 5 a.m. so students can do physical activities in the gym or work in a computer lab. Employees also are helping children with homework and feeding them meals.
