AT THE Y WE ARE MORE THAN A GYM
Welcome to the Cape Ann YMCA! We have all of the amenities you and your family need to be together, play together and stay healthy together.
Youth Development – 4,600 youth and teens are learning, growing, and thriving to become tomorrow's leaders. Our Y offers licensed childcare programs, summer day camps and a wide variety of youth programs.
Healthy Living – 7,400 individuals, children and families are part of our Y community, receiving the support and encouragement they need to achieve better health and well-being while reaching their health and wellness goals.
Social Responsibility – We ensure that our programs are accessible to all by providing $350,000 in financial assistance each year so everyone regardless of their ability to pay can enjoy their community Y!
Preschool Child Care
NOW ENROLLING FOR FALL!
YMCA Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs provide a safe, wholesome environment in which children can learn to communicate, cooperate and care about each other. Our low staff-to-child ratios give your preschooler one-on-one interaction with teachers.
Our Y provides hundreds of families across the North Shore with high quality educational opportunities to give your child the best possible start towards elementary school. When your child takes part in our Preschool or Kindergarten Readiness program, they will have a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Our robust curriculum in our Pre-K program prepares children to become independent learners and develop self-confidence for sharing in a classroom setting. Through curriculum themes based on the interests of older children we focus on the areas of pre-reading, math and science skill development. Children are immersed in social interactions with peers and adults, giving them the tools they need to succeed in and out of the school environment.
Enrichment Included! Our YMCA education programs also include age appropriate enrichment activities like swimming, gymnastics, sports, fitness, dance, music and outdoor play. We are committed to the physical well being of all our children and provide weekly activities based on age and developmental levels. All of these enrichment activities are included in the weekly tuition.
