Strengthening Community Since 1855
You may know the Y as the place to go to get in a heart-pumping workout, but the Y exists as a non-profit here to meet the needs of the community. We're helping kids, adults and families in Ohio neighborhoods become the best version of themselves through numerous programs and services such as: Child Care, Financial Assistance, Youth & Government, and so much more.
Everyone is welcome here. We believe diversity enriches and enlivens our Y. When you are a member of the Y, you are helping to strengthen your community.
Ensuring A Brighter Future.
Preschool/Early Childhood Education
“The Y means everything to me when it comes to Mason. It means he is happy and continuing to move forward a little bit each day with the help of teachers that care about him.”
The Y provides an environment that encourages curiosity, creativity and expression. Children are individuals, and we believe in developing the whole child emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially, while meeting each child’s own needs and learning styles. Through games, group activities, songs, creative drama, gym time, outdoor play, and story time, children will learn about the world around them. We believe in partnering with parents to encourage whole child development within a safe and nurturing environment.
"It helps kids like us become more confident."
