May Updates: 
We are very excited to announce KINDERGARTEN PREP! For ages 4-6, this academic-based, virtual learning experience will help your child zoom right into kindergarten for September. This curriculum-rich program offers engaging and interactive opportunities to prepare your child with the skills and tools needed for kindergarten. There are 2-day and 3-day options available. Register for as many weeks as you want! With a focus on strengthening foundations in math, literacy, language, writing, social and emotional development, Kindergarten Prep offers social interactions amongst peers in a small group setting for individualized attention. Click here to enroll!

April Updates:
After careful deliberation with state and local health officials and our staff and volunteer leadership, we have made the decision to temporarily close the Madison Area YMCA's Family Center and F.M. Kirby Children's Center. We are aware that this situation continues to be extremely fluid, and, as a result, our reopening plan will remain to be determined. Please stay safe and be well.

We also recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic and the forced temporary closure of the Madison Area YMCA's facilities including the Family Center and Kirby Center may impact some of our staff more than others. We have developed a way for staff to request support through a confidential email where Y staff can submit requests for support for any unmet needs. We are grateful of the outpouring of virtual support from our families and members. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please consider donating to the Stay with the Y: Operations Support Fund by CLICKING HERE. This will enable us to support our staff and our Y community and allow us to remain viable.
