PARTNERING WITH PARENTS
Opening at the Salem Family YMCA in 2022
The Family YMCA of Marion and Polk Counties looks forward to reopening our licensed early childhood education programs at the new Salem Family YMCA in early 2022. Our nurturing and knowledgeable counselors teach the core character development traits of the YMCA: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
All YMCA programs operate with thorough health safeguards to protect our students and staff members. Our specially trained team helps practice social distancing, frequently disinfects program spaces and items, performs regular health checks, and makes sure all kids stay safe while learning and having fun.
