Hamilton Area YMCA

Enrichment

The Y is the launching point for many children to learn about the world around them and become better prepared for their school years through education, social engagement, and by developing healthy habits they will carry with them throughout their lives.

The Hamilton Area YMCA offers enrichment classes for children ages 1 - 5 to integrate all areas of development. Children learn through stimulating activities and enhanced play, mastering skills that will help them study their everyday surroundings and discover answers for themselves.  

Take learning to the next level by enrolling your child in our session-based classes.

For more information on Enrichment Programs, contact Beverly Gessner at 609.581.9622 ext. 113 or bgessner@hamiltonymca.org.
