About Blackshear YMCA
Fun and learning ahead at Blackshear YMCA! Blackshear YMCA is an early care and education provider in Austin that welcomes students and families to a center-based facility. As a center, Blackshear YMCA provides an environment that’s geared towards stability, structure and providing learning resources and opportunities for children to explore the sights and sounds of the world around them. Children will meet and form bonds with peers of like ages and benefit from quality instructions from experienced adults. In addition, Blackshear YMCA takes a play-based approach to child development and education. Play-based curriculums emphasize students having the independence to explore their own interests at the time, be they creative, constructional, observational or artistic, and emphasize students being hands-on and natural with their activities. Staff at play-based curriculums take an active role in the discovery and learning process, encouraging students to dig in, explore, and cooperate with their peers to create the world around them.
