“The Y is our family.”
For Kristin and Ben Yates, the Y is more than just a part of their daily routine for child care, extracurricular activities and fitness. “We feel the Y is our family,” shares Kristin.
The Yates have been members since 2013 when they enrolled their oldest child Alexandra in the preschool program. She is now a second grader in the Safe ‘n Sound program and her younger brothers, Logan and Wyatt, are both in Bright Beginnings. “Everything is here, the teachers are wonderful, and there are so many unique offerings for the kids that aren’t provided elsewhere,” says Kristin. “It’s so convenient that they can do their classes—like swim lessons—during the day, so that our evenings and weekends are free for quality family time. We love the Y!”
