The YMCA of Fredericton has been an essential facility for the Currie family since moving back to Fredericton in 2017. “We choose the Y because it has a variety of features and amenities and because it is a steadfast inclusive institution within the community. We are fortunate to live within walking distance and find ourselves at the Y daily, whether it is for a workout or for a climb on the play gym.”
Everyone in the family can agree that the Y is a great place to unwind from a busy day or gear up for a fun filled weekend. Whether the two girls are splashing in the pool or running around and playing during the open gym sessions they always leave feeling happy and refreshed. The Y provides the space for them to catch up with friends or make new ones as they play! The girls also enjoy the childcare programs. The youngest loves her daycare where the dedicated staff make every day special. The eldest has moved from daycare to after school care and appreciates that the Y is a welcoming and familiar place to hang out with friends and be herself. As for the grownups in the family, the wellness centre and the fitness classes have been pivotal in maintaining both physical and mental health.
“We see the Y as a key facility for our family for the immediate future and for the years to come.”
