Early Learning Readiness



  • Help your child develop and get ready for school.
  • Enjoy games, books, resources and more!
  • Meet other caregivers of young children.
  • Your child can interact with other children his/her age.

The YMCA's FREE Early Learning Readiness program provides a place for young children to play, learn and develop the skills they'll need for school.
The caregiver or parent attends each class with their child and learns developmental activities to do at home. Children Ages 0-5 (must attend each class with their caregiver).

For more information contact:  Leah Burnett at 314.776.7102.
