Preschool Child Care
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.
Personal Training and Services
PERSONALIZED TRAINING, AMAZING RESULTS
YMCA Personal Trainers are certified professionals with education and experience across many disciplines. Your trainer will customize a fitness plan to fit your needs, budget and schedule.
Personal training is ideal for beginners who may be intimidated by a new routine, an experienced person who is not getting the results you're looking for, someone who is recovering from injury or surgery, or someone who is training for a special event or sport.
We offer a wide variety of personal training packages at all of our Ys based on your needs and availability.
GET IN THE GAME, GET IN ON THE FUN
