Little Guides

If you have children between the ages of 3 and 5, our Little Guides programs are a great way for you to foster a positive lifelong relationship with them. Emphasizing the vital role parents play in the growth and development of children, we host monthly group events that help build a child’s self-esteem, character and identity. Our Ys arrange a variety of great activities, including camping-in, swimming, pajama story time and more.

“What a great way for me and my daughter to spend time together with other fathers and daughters. Not only has she made new friends, but I’ve enjoyed connecting with other dads and am having fun too.”

Through our Little Guides programs, you and your child will create memories together that will last a lifetime. You’ll also develop healthy relationships, gain a sense of belonging and learn the importance of giving back to the community through activities with other families and community service projects.

Check with your local Y to see what they have to offer.

Families that play together, stay together.
