YMCA Early Learning Care
The Y’s Grow NJ Kids rated Early Learning programs combine a safe and happy educational environment with an intentional, proven curriculum designed to stimulate intellectual, emotional, and social growth – all with the focus of preparing children for success in kindergarten and beyond. Our Early Learning programs start at infancy and extend through Pre-K to provide consistent, safe, and exceptional care.

State Access Pre K

State Access Pre-K

The YMCA of MEWSA is proud to offer state access Pre-K at Grace Early Learning Center & Harborview Early Learning Center in Perth Amboy, NJ. This program through the state of New Jersey offers free access to Y Pre-K programming to families who meet state requirements. Through the Y, families in our region can have access to critical child care, growth, opportunities, and learning.
YMCA School Age Care
The Y’s Before & After School Enrichment Program helps fill a gap for working families by keeping kids safe when not in school. Kindergartners and school age kids balance learning and fun before and after school while developing social skills and engaging with positive adult role models. 

Y Summer Camp
Grouped by age and grade, campers learn how to create new friendships and explore the natural world around them. Camp activities like art, music, nature, swimming, and sports are designed to build confidence, new skills, and untapped talent. Themes, special activities, and events make it a different adventure every week.
YMCA Financial Assistance
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why the Y is committed to working with families to provide affordable access to child care through our financial assistance program.
Make a Difference
When you give to the Y, you can change a child’s life. The Y’s financial assistance program is powered by the generosity of our communities and donors.
