The Y is committed to building a safe and child-centered atmosphere where children grow, learn and thrive. You can count on the South Shore YMCA to partner with you and your family in committing to keep all children safe through education, prevention and awareness.

I am so happy our family found the Early Learning Center. Because of the unmatched patience and support of his teachers, my previously reluctant boy learned to join in activities and is getting an amazing head start. This program has helped my son in so many ways, and for that I am grateful. Anonymous
