FACILITY UPDATES

Greater Naples YMCA


Tis the season of love and thanksgiving. Your continued support, encouragement and joy are inspiring. We have deep gratitude and appreciation for our Y mission and family – each of you!

As you have been starved for information, let us feed you now.

Early Learning Center: As you know, our Early Learning Center suffered significant damage during Hurricane Irma. As a result, we moved our 154 young learners to multiple locations to best support and quickly re-establish a nurturing and stable environment for our Y kids and working families. Today, and together with our teachers, families and youth, we continue to learn and grow in our temporary space as we continue working towards a long-term solution for our youth.   

Child watch: Due to the placement of our more than 200 early learning and after-school students in the east wing after Hurricane Irma, Child watch will continue to be hosted in our Volpe conference room.

24 - Hour Wellness: Since hurricane Irma, 24- Hour Wellness has been closed. To allow for other requested services and needs to be met throughout our campus, 24- Hour Wellness access will remain suspended. We know members using this service will be disappointed. Thank you for your understanding. Please let us assist you with finding classes, programs and other services here at your Y.  

Building Access & Safety: Short-term solutions for access and safety are being implemented now while long-term, permanent solutions are being developed. Beginning in January, the Aquatics lobby entrance will reopen and be staffed. It is important for us to know who is in our building at all times in order to keep all safe and well.


FLOOR INSTALLATION

We are excited to announce that new flooring will be installed in the main level hallway just in time for Christmas! Work will begin on Thursday, December 14 and will be completed Saturday, December 23. In order to allow the flooring to set, we will need to progressively close sections of the hallway starting on the west side of the building and moving east.

This installation will impact access to Child Watch, the locker rooms, the group fitness studios, the gymnasium, and our early learning & after school classrooms.

Please read below to understand how to access these areas while the flooring is being installed.
