At the Cambridge YMCA, we believe that our mission of promoting and inspiring life-long development for children, adults, and families is best achieved by offering a broad range of activities that are designed to meet the needs of a diverse community. Our programs are tailored to build healthy spirits, minds, and bodies for all, and to foster lasting personal and social change. Our commitment to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, enables us to create a safe and nurturing environment that strengthens individuals, families, and the community as a whole.
At the Cambridge YMCA Preschool, we pride ourselves on providing a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. Our classroom consists of mixed ages 2.9 to 5 years. Our preschool children are encouraged to learn cooperatively, to be self-assured, confident, and problem solve with the help of our well-experienced and educated staff. We focus on responding to the children’s needs, interests, and questions about the world around them.
At the Cambridge YMCA After School Program, children have many opportunities to grow and discover new hobbies and interests. Children have access to a wide range of enrichment and educational activities including arts and crafts, swimming lessons, gym time, and other classroom activities.*
The Cambridge YMCA’s Summer Program provides structured, fun-filled activities and outings to local parks, as well as weekly field trips to museums, movies, beaches, and other exciting locations in the Boston/Cambridge area.*
