Outdoor Winter Pool Hours
Please note that our outdoor pool winter hours are now in effect due to the change in season. As is always in order to stay safe our outdoor pool may also close if temperatures drop below 32, if we cannot keep the deck clear of snow or ice, or if fog/steam/rain/snow/sleet prevent the staff from clearly seeing swimmers. Stay in the know about up to the minute outdoor pools operations and subscribe to our outdoor pool email update list: simply contact Tyler Lamar at tyler.lamar@ymcadc.org

Stay Safe in the Water

Whether it be indoor or outdoor, pools are great places to spend the summer. Next time before you take a dip here at YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase, verse yourself on our pool rules, and read up on water-safety tips!

The YMCA Ayrlawn Program Center provides a safe, caring and nurturing environment for children ages 2 to 5 years old. YMCA Ayrlawn's Early Learning Center offers a Half Day and Full Day option. Half Day operates from 9am-12:30pm and is a 10 month program following the MCPS calendar. Full Day operates 6:30am to 6:30pm and is a 12 month program. Catered snack and lunch is included in the monthly tuition for both programs. Our Early Learning Center is a licensed program through MSDE Office of Child Care.

YMCA Early Learning Program uses the Creative Curriculum Gold. The Creative curriculum incorporates experiences that permit learning through guided play and active discovery. By incorporating the latest research on early childhood, the curriculum focuses on development of the whole child – cognitive, social, and physical. We also provide electronic daily reports (tadpoles). Every month we have prepared special events and/or field trips for the children enrolled in our program. In addition to our curriculum the children receive Spanish and PHD (Physical, Healthy, and Driven) classes per week.
