Here for Children & Families

The YMCA is here to support the evolving needs in education, as children return to school. With small classes and an assuring environment, the Y is gratefully supporting families who need safe, affordable educational enrichment.

The Y’s safe and enriching Kindergarten program runs 5 days/week, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students engage in an academic curriculum, physical fitness, STEAM challenges, social-emotional learning activities, and more. Full Day Kindergarten provides children with a strong foundation for future academic outcomes.

Safety Is Our Priority

Leading with safety, we follow all CDC, local health department and licensing guidelines and follow health, safety, cleaning, and PPE protocols. We’ve also continued our established low staff to child ratios to give each child the attention they need.
