The Y. So much more than a Gym

YMCA Early Learning Academy

The YMCA Early Learning Academy provides enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs of each individual child by working in partnership with his or her families. Our program, licensed by the State of PA and the STARS program (we are a STAR 3 facility), provides a curriculum that focuses on how children develop and learn so that each child is prepared to enter kindergarten. 


Y CARE- School Age Programs

In Y Care After School Programs, kids engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, they participate in interactive learning models that engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with their homework from trained YMCA staff, and have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence. School age kids also have the opportunity to participate in STEM activities (science, technology, engineering, math), a variety of literacy activities and HEPA activities (healthy eating, physical activity).

Youth Development
They are not just today’s youth. They are tomorrow’s leaders. Our Child Care Services and Youth Sports Programs are teaching kids new skills while emphasizing values and sportsmanship that will make them a better person in or out of the game.
Healthy Living
The Meadville Family YMCA is a place that helps you focus on being your best self, inside and out. Being healthy can certainly begin with exercise, but it’s much more than that. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work towards that balance in many ways, like learning new skills, connecting with others or bringing loved ones here for great activities.

Social Responsibility
We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward.  That’s why the Y is committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give and join our cause in the name of a stronger community.
