Salem City Schools

With the start of the school year looking very different than in years past, we are making plans to adapt our program to meet the needs of our participants and families. Our Y Enrichment Center will provide families an all-day program option at the Salem Family YMCA with a focus around virtual learning support, enrichment, and physical activity. We will also offer our after school program as normal in the schools we serve. 

The health and safety of our children, staff, and families is our top priority and we will be following guidelines as set forth by the Virginia Health Department, state, and local officials. Due to these guidelines we will be taking children on a first-come, first-serve basis and limiting attendance to match the guidelines. 

Even though this year will look different, our commitment to providing our children with a fun and engaging place to learn, and our parents an environment where their children are being well cared for remains the same.

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Our enrichment curriculum provides children with the opportunity to explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. Children will participate in monthly themed enrichment activities to include: Soccer Around the World, Follow the Animals, Arts Factory, Winter Weather Science, and more throughout the school year!
