PLAISTOW — The Plaistow Community YMCA is moving its Early Learning Center from 16 Danville Road to a new space located onsite at the Plaistow YMCA. The center will include four classrooms, designed specifically for providing child care to children 6 weeks to 6 years old with low staff-to-child ratios and licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care.

“It is so important to offer early education opportunities to the community and support our parents and families in their day-to-day life,” said Tracy Fuller, executive director of the Plaistow YMCA. “Having an early education center in our building furthers the Y’s mission and commitment to being a resource for our members and the community as a whole.”
