Ridley Area

Early Childhood / School Age Programs

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

The Community YMCA is an Equal Opportunity Early Childhood Provider.

School Age Program

We believe that learning never stops and that children should have a place to explore their interests and talents. Our professional and highly trained staff provides daily activities focused on academic enhancement, social growth and physical activity.
