My kids have been in Kids space going on 10 years now. I love and trust the counselors, and appreciate the breadth of the classes, which keep getting better and better every year.Tracy Fitzpatrick Kids space

A sense of community
The Y has been a second home to my two children for the past 10 years. My teenage daughter and 9 year-old son have attended afterschool and summer camp programs since kindergarten. Through the years the staff have gone out of their way to know, understand, and develop a genuinely caring relationship with my children. It is comforting to know your children are in a safe and secure environment.Barbara Vargas – Segers
So much to do…
Kid’s Space is well run and professional. The variety of classes offered from art to science and drama, provides enough to keep any child engaged. We are so glad that we had the opportunity to send our daughter to the Y.Devorah Levin
