Early Learning.

The YMCA has always focused on meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of our young learners so they can grow into the change makers of tomorrow—and today is no different.

During these challenging times when routines seem to change daily, one thing remains the same: the Y provides a safe, enriching place for children to learn and grow, and essential child care for parents returning to work.

The Y’s early learning offerings are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the support parents and families need and the importance of maintaining a safe, clean environment for children to learn and thrive. Our curriculum at all ages and stages is based on these three concepts:

  • Children are born ready to learn.

  • Children learn through play.

  • Children’s learning is active. ​

School Day Enrichment.

We know that school is going to look a lot different this fall, so the Y is here to help! We’re pleased to offer school day Enrichment Programs structured to provide your child time and space to complete their virtual coursework. Your kids will enjoy a safe place to learn and connect, and you’ll have peace of mind as you focus on responsibilities at work and home. 


We know that safety is a big priority for your family, so we’ve taken precautions at our Y to help keep your kids healthy and thriving. We’re following guidelines from health experts and local officials to ensure we meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety.

Full days will blend time for both virtual learning and engaging programs including free play, sports, games, crafts and STEM activities.

Parents, please note: Y staff will provide guidance but will not be responsible for teaching lessons or monitoring individual progress.

Open to students in Kindergarten- Grade 6.
