Mary Blair Elementary School opened in 1972 and served the community for 50 years, cultivating a love for learning in countless students. In the winter and spring 2024, the 48,900-square-foot building will take on a new role in service to this community: It will be repurposed as the Loveland YMCA. The forthcoming Loveland YMCA will offer fitness and wellness programs, sports, camps, preschool and childcare, family and teen programming, opportunities for community and connection, and so much more.


The Loveland YMCA will offer life-changing fitness and wellness offerings, high-five-worthy sports programs and giggle-inducing camps and youth programs. Let’s not forget the new preschool and early childhood education offerings, opportunities for social connection, and endless amounts of fun.

The Loveland YMCA will have the following amenities:


  • Fitness programs and classes (open)
  • Community event and meeting space (open)
  • Satellite library for the Loveland Public Library (open)
  • Child Watch (childcare while you work out) (open)
  • Preschool (open)
  • Infant/toddler care (open)
  • Before and after school childcare (open)
  • Summer day camp (open)

Preschool and Before & After School Care at the Loveland Y is open. Infant and Toddler Care will open in later 2024. Building renovation work on the fitness side of the building will take a few months, and we hope to have the fitness side fully open in April 2024. 

The Loveland YMCA is be located at the former Mary Blair Elementary School on 29th Street, just east of Monroe Avenue.

The Loveland preschool is open for ages 3-6. The preschool provides early childhood education, active play and character-focused programming.  We accept the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) and also serve families covered under Colorado’s new Universal Pre-Kindergarten program. We expect to add infant and toddler care within the first year of opening.

Hours of operation have not yet been solidified for the Loveland YMCA but there will be a fitness portion that will have 24 hour access. 

We are hiring for positions now. There are many employment opportunities — from preschool teachers and childcare staff to trainers and fitness instructors and membership staff. You can check our careers page in the coming months.

We are still assessing pricing, and we will post that information as soon as we have solidified it. One thing to note: The Y has nationwide membership, which means you can visit other Ys throughout Colorado, including Longmont, Lafayette, Johnstown and Boulder, and 98 percent of all Ys across the country. We will offer a variety of membership types for individuals, couples, seniors and families as well as corporate memberships, military memberships and Renew Active, SilverSneakers and SilverandFit memberships. Members receive discounts on YMCA programs, including summer camp, personal training and youth sports. The YMCA also provides donor-funded financial assistance to those who qualify. Funds raised by the Y ensure all children, families, individuals and seniors have access to preschool, youth sports and wellness opportunities. At the Y, we strive to turn no one away because of an inability to pay.

The Loveland Y building will require millions of dollars in capital improvements, and we will need help from champions like you. While many aspects of the building are well suited for its new life as a YMCA, there is a need for significant upgrades and improvements. In order to make the building fully functional, effective and responsive as a YMCA, we must come together to modernize, improve and transform this building into a community center that serves all. These projects include retrofitting the building with air conditioning, upgrading the preschool space, building a playground, purchasing fitness equipment and much more.
