A couple people in attendance also asked Pastel to address a rumor that she had met with the YMCA and had already made a deal with them to use space in Waterman school for a preschool program. Pastel said that she was contacted by the YMCA about leasing space in Waterman for a preschool program, but she had only talked to them and started to research if that would be possible.
There is no plan in place for any childcare or preschool programs to be in the Skaneateles public schools, though the possibility of leasing space in one of the schools has yet to be eliminated as a possibility, she said.
