Education at the YMCA of Frederick County
Full-day, three-day, or five-day Educational Enrichment Program
When school is out, the Y is in! We are committed to serving all students engaged in distance learning by providing full-day educational childcare, Monday through Friday, 6:30 am-6:30 pm. Y Learning will combine fun, character-building activities with an education enrichment component. Participants will receive homework help, along with dedicated time to complete school assignments. Y trained staff will be able to offer additional opportunities for participants interested in honing in on valuable math, reading, or science skills.
All proper health and safety protocols will continue to be taken including:
- temperature checks,
- extensive sanitization,
- social distancing,
- mask requirements
- and more
