All kids have great potential. At the Y, we want young people to explore their possibilities and think big! That’s why we offer such a diverse array of activities in an encouraging and supportive environment, where kids can explore new interests and passions. Led by positive role models, the Y’s programs encourage young people to develop healthy, trusting relationships and self-reliance through the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.


Special Guest Bedtime Stories

Children of all ages (including the young and young-at-heart) are invited to join us each month to enjoy a snack while listening to one of our favorite bedtime stories, read to them by a very special guest. Among our invited guests this season are the Queen of Hearts and the Easter Bunny! Be sure to follow our social media channels (@AttleboryYMCA) – Facebook & Instagram – as well as visiting our website for additional updates and special guest announcements.
