At the Y, we believe that “play is the work of young children, and is the foundation for learning.” Our Play and Learn Centers offer children the opportunity to experience curriculum-based learning activities in a fun and nurturing environment.
Our trained staff can care for babies 6 weeks and older, and we have activities geared to toddlers and for children up to 10 years of age. A few of our locations also have Play and Learn amenities geared to pre-teens (ages 11-12); please ask at your local Y.
Children ages 5-12 enjoy a variety of fun, enriching activities while parents enjoy peace of mind knowing their child is safe and well cared for. Fully qualified staff provide strong leadership and a caring environment.
We know parents need a break from time to time while kids enjoy games, crafts, and more centered around a unique monthly theme. Kids play in the Play and Learn Center while adults can enjoy an evening out. These specially themed evenings include crafts, games, dinner, physical activities and lots of fun!
The Parent’s Day Out program provides a play group for your child and a break away from the Y for you to shop, run errands, have an extended lunch, see a movie or just relax. Children can learn a lot from regular play dates with friends including social skills, sharing, communication with others and how to deal with separation issues. We offer arts & crafts, group activities, story time and free play.
You’ll enjoy a few hours away and your kids will have a blast participating in age-appropriate themed activities. Pizza, apple sauce and juice boxes will be provided for dinner. You deserve some time out on the town while your kids enjoy a fun-filled evening making friends, crafts, games, and more in a safe, well-supervised environment.
At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.
