Rye Y Story Project: Rachel

RachelGThe Rye Y has been a “lifesaver” for our family! We moved to Rye after living in London for seven years and we absolutely love the programs that are offered to young children. My five-year old, who entered Kindergarten this fall, has learned to swim at the Y and the swim instructors did a great job of building up his confidence in the water. He also participates in the basketball program and other sport classes. My three-year old is also enrolled in the swim program and is getting more comfortable after each class. He enjoys the “Mom & Tot” classes with Ellen Watermelon and Dawny Dew.

The babysitting staff is phenomenal and my kids love playing with the other children. The babysitting program allows me to not only work out in the fitness center and participate in the spinning classes, but I can also go into town and grab a cup of coffee. Our family also enjoys the family swim and open gym time on weekends. We attended the Halloween Party and we had no idea it was going to be so much fun. The Rye Y has helped my family maintain balance and get settled into the community.
