Programs located ONLY at Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA:
INFANT PROGRAMS (6 Weeks to 15 Months)
Enjoy a wholesome environment where your child will begin to discover the world around them. With low child-to-staff ratios, the staff creates individualized schedules to meet each child’s needs, and parents receive daily communication from teachers, ensuring everyone stays on the same page when it comes to their care.

TODDLER PROGRAMS (15 Months to 2.9 Years) 
With guidance throughout the day as they navigate social situations, children investigate cause and effect relationships and build on essential early language and motor skills. Daily routines give children the opportunity to develop a sense of security, confidence, and willingness to engage in the environment and with their peers.

Programs located at Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA & Swampscott Education Center:

PRESCHOOL & PRE-K (2.9 years - 5 years) 
Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs provide a safe, nurturing 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. When your child takes part in our Preschool or Kindergarten Readiness program, they will have a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning.

Flexible Pricing
 

One of the biggest challenges for our communities today is the rapidly increasing cost of living AND the additional financial burden that has been brought on by the pandemic.  We understand and we believe that every family & individual deserves the opportunity to enjoy their local YMCA and connect with their community again. This is why we continue to offer flexible income-based membership pricing!
