Keeping Student’s Brains Active and Learning This Summer

By The YMCA of Greater New York, Special for  USDR

Summer vacation is here! While students are already enjoying their summer break, it is important to keep children active and engaged to prevent learning loss that accompanies long school  breaks.

“Summer break is the perfect time to turn New York City into a classroom – there are many exciting ways to engage kids in learning outside of school,” said Lauren Barr, Senior Executive, School and Branch Based Programs K-12, YMCA of Greater New York. “At the Y, we’re working with families to identify and provide child care that is safe, educational and fun to ensure that kids continue learning and are active year  round.”
