  • Y Educational Academy - Supporting Familys Through Remote Learning
    A YMCA Program in Support of Local School Districts and the Families of K-6th Grade Students in the Greater Nashua Region.

    As a new school year begins and that school year looks different than any other, the YMCA is committed to providing families with safe and enriching child care while ensuring that students have support in any remote learning they are doing with their schools. The YMCA has been providing child care and summer camp programs to children since the middle of March in a safe, caring and responsible way and we are excited about expanding upon that work by equipping children with the tools they need to succeed academically and socially in this new environment.

    During the Y Educational Academy students will have designated time to engage in remote learning with their schools. Quiet spaces will be provided for students to meet with their teachers, complete assignments and further their studies. Staff and volunteers will be available to help students with their remote work.

    To enhance what the schools are offering, the YMCA is partnering with BellXcel to provide in-person curriculum using LitArt. Each day during the Brain Power Hour, YMCA staff and volunteers will lead students in fun, project based, grade appropriate educational activities in math, literacy and writing. This work will help students stay ahead throughout the school year.

    DAYS, LOCATIONS, TIMES AND COST

    Our program will run Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:30pm with families dropping off and picking up within those times at the Westwood Park YMCA. To meet the varying schedules of area school districts, parents can register for various days within a week.
