Lynn Academy Facts

Y Academy – Lynn


The Lynn Y Academy offers a safe, stable and nurturing environment to children 2.9 years old to age 5. Our Early Learning programs are fully licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Early Education and have received NAEYC accreditation.  We serve the communities of Lynn, Nahant, Saugus, Revere, Peabody, Lynnfield, Melrose, and Stoneham.

We embrace a family-centered philosophy encouraging family interaction and regular visits with teachers to discuss your child’s development. Children are assigned a Primary Caregiver Teacher who works directly with the child each day providing personal and individualized attention. Small class sizes and low ratios allow each child to be seen as a special individual. Our teachers hold a degree in Early Childhood Education, a related field or are currently working toward a degree. Our staff is also encouraged to further their professional growth through continuing education programs.
