Through our Y's Little Explorers program, children will be introduced to the important skills of building character values, and self-esteem, and improving kindergarten readiness while taking advantage of all the YMCA offers.
Children will participate in engaging educational activities, swim days, field trips, and more. Low-ratio classrooms will allow children to build educational skills as well as foster social and emotional growth.

Financial Assistance:

While we try to make all of our programs affordable, we feel strongly that income should not be a barrier to becoming a member of the Y or participating in any of our programs. Therefore, thanks in large part to our Annual Campaign, we offer financial assistance to anyone in our community whose income doesn’t allow for a gym membership, swim lessons, youth sports, camp, after-school care, and so much more that the YMCA offers. Anyone can apply to receive financial assistance. Eligibility for financial assistance and the amount of financial assistance that can be given is determined on an individual basis. For more information, check our Financial Assistance Page.
