Cherryland Early Learning & Family Resource Center

At the Y, success starts at birth. The YMCA of the East Bay has more than 16 Early Learning Centers throughout targeted low-income communities in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Our centers help more than 1,200 children and families who visit our centers daily.

The Y is responding to the need to build a new Early Learning Center in Cherryland (located near Hayward), an area where 23% are at poverty, 50% identify as Hispanic, and 39% are foreign-born populations. The Cherryland Campaign fundraising goal is $8.1 million with more than 74% of funding already secured.

Key Center Details:

  • Cherryland will be ready to serve 90-100 children birth-5 years old and their families, beginning in March.
  • 10% of slots are reserved for children with disabilities
  • State of the art design is based on trauma informed research
  • Family resources provided to strengthen families and promote resilience
  • On-site teacher education program with on-the-job-training
  • Comprehensive services including health, mental health, dental, nutrition, developmental and other screenings
