Early Learning Readiness

This FREE program offers a place for children and caregivers to learn and grow together. Children develop social, verbal and motor skills through active play, while caregivers learn how to help children build skills at home. Free snacks and engaging activities are available at every program and anyone that is a caregiver— family, friends, family support workers, neighbors—is invited. For children 0 – 5 years and their adult caretaker. FREE Y Family Gym on Sundays for program participants.

Programs run from September to early June.
