For Social Development

Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y

Come and see what ELR is all about...and register for Fall 2015!
Yes, the school year is coming to an end, but that doesn't mean you can't start thinking about fall! The Y's Early Learning Readiness program provides a stimulating environment for children to play and learn, developing the physical, verbal and social skills they'll need to start school ready to succeed. In an informal setting with multiple play stations, caregivers will learn more about how children develop and how they can encourage learning and skill building at home. So join us so...
