About Y Academy Downtown Melrose

As a leader in youth development, the Melrose Y Academy serves children ages 5-13 on a daily basis providing safe, quality and affordable Out-Of-School-Time care from 8:00am-5:00pm. Our program is staffed with educators who understand the cognitive, physical, and social development of children; and we support them in making new connections and trying new things. While in the Out-of-School-Time program, children learn how to be their best selves and to develop confidence in becoming the responsible and engaged adults of tomorrow.

While in our program children will participate in a variety of engaging activities:

  • Access to full gymnasium
  • Healthy snack provided to align with YMCA HEPA (Healthy Living Physical Activity Standards)!
  • Dedicated time for STEAM activities, physical activity, and homework support every day.
