About Heritage Park YMCA

Heritage Park YMCA is an early learning center where children play to learn and learn to play. Heritage Park, located in the heart of downtown Pawtucket, provides a spacious environment for active exploration for children ages 6 weeks to 7 years old. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Heritage Park is a year round center open most days including school vacation weeks and throughout the summer. Each of our programs is outfitted with the latest materials that encourage children to learn at their own pace. Our center is licensed Rhode Island Department of Human Services (DHS) and is a proud participant in the Bright Stars quality rating scale in Rhode Island.

In all of our programs, Infant/Toddler, Preschool, and School Age, children have plenty of materials and equipment to exercise their developing muscles and inquiring minds. The staff is well trained in the developmental needs of the children and our assessment system assists the teachers in supporting the strengths of the individual child as they explore and learn new skills. We work in partnership with the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) to provide nutritious meals at no additional cost to families.

The Heritage Park YMCA early learning center fosters community and family engagement and welcomes everyone to come together to celebrate the change of seasons and accomplishments by attending one of our Family Nights and our Pre-School Graduation.
