YMCA Virtual & Interactive Labs

Organization: YMCA of Metropolitan Washington

YMCA Virtual and Interactive Learning Labs adopt a developmentally appropriate approach to nurturing young people. This in-person program takes a Lab approach in limited class sizes and will provide the necessary environment to ensure that each student receives the appropriate support as they engage in virtual learning with their school. The YMCA Learning Labs incorporate character development as the framework for a successful, positive and healthy environment.

The Y’s primary concern is the health and safety of your child while they are in our care. Children will be expected to follow the requirements of local government policy in regards to wearing masks. Children two years and older are required to wear masks with the following exceptions:

While eating or drinking
Anyone who has a breathing problem or health issue that would put their health at risk by wearing a cloth face covering.
Anyone communicating with people who are hearing impaired for which the mouth needs to be visible.
When temporary removal of the face covering is needed to get medical or governmental services.
Masks and PPE will be worn by all staff and the Y will implement extensive cleaning procedures throughout the day. The Y will also be limiting contact between children in classrooms in addition to providing designated supply kits for each child.

In support of the virtual learning curriculum of the local school systems, each day the program will allow students to have guided instruction in the lab. This will allow them to continue their academic studies as assigned by their schools while they are away from the classroom, providing valuable consistency necessary to achieve each student’s learning goals. Students will work on their school’s assignments each day with the support of Y staff who will be there to help answer questions and provide guidance where needed.

Additionally, students will also be able to choose from a selection of the Y’s programs to help them develop socially, by participating in activities that are fun and stimulate their creativity. The Y is offering the following list of exciting Y Electives so children can choose activities that interest them throughout the day.
