Lunch and camper T-shirt included. This program is offered at Early Learning University only – adjacent to the campus of Edinboro University.

Your child’s safety and security is our top priority and is achieved through established and practiced procedures. We take every precaution to insure safety for your child, including:
Healthy meals and snacks are the cornerstone of your child’s learning throughout the day. Smart food choices are taught and modeled by our staff such as drinking water and the importance of all four food groups.
Physical activity is an important part of every day at the Y. Large motor skills are developed through daily active play. Your child’s physical skills are individually strengthened through the use of the Y’s extensive facilities—including playgrounds, gyms, pools and more.
With loads of activity and learning, kids need time to recharge. Rest time is scheduled daily in calming environments with caring supervision.
