In continuing efforts to ensure the needs of area families are satisfied, today the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago announced its plans to expand the Fry Family YMCA, located at 2120 W. 95th Street in south Naperville.
The renovations will have positive effects on both programming, with the addition of two preschool classrooms and a viewing area in front of the pool, and space, with the construction of a family locker room and expanded parking. The expansion is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2013, and the Fry Family YMCA will remain open during construction.
We look forward to offering families more privacy through the addition of a family locker room, and will be able to better meet the needs of the youngest members of the YMCA through our two new preschool classrooms.
The preschool classrooms will be used for licensed partial and full day preschool programs. A kindergarten afterschool program is planned for the 2013-14 school year. Current preschool programs also will be expanded along with evening and weekend classes.
The 95th Street Center was opened in December 1995 on the south side of Naperville as a branch of the Naperville YMCA. The first expansion was completed in 2000. In fall 2005 the 95th Street Center was renamed the Fry Family YMCA.
Groundbreaking event is 4:30-6:30PM, Fri., Sept. 28
The community is welcome to attend the official groundbreaking event from 4:30 to 6:30PM on Fri., Sept. 28. The Naperville mayor will be in attendance, and there will be building tours, face painting and opportunities for parents/children to get their photos taken with a hard hat and shovel.
Immediately following the groundbreaking there will be a Family Fun Night, which you can register for by calling (630) 904-9595. You may also follow the expansion progress at fryymca.org, and on Facebook at facebook.com/FryFamilyYMCA.
