Interacting, learning and growing! Browse our infant and toddler care programs and register below.


Infant Care – 6 weeks to 17 months

YMCA infant and toddler care programs feature a daily curriculum designed to meet the growth and developmental needs of each individual child. The creative curriculum has research-based objectives that focus on developmentally appropriate practices and how to offer nurturing daily routines and meaningful experiences for each child. This program will accommodate any parent's need to breast feed their child who is enrolled in our program.

Toddler Care - 18 months to 35 months

Toddlers are busy and learning at a very fast pace.  Our comprehensive creative curriculum focuses on responsive care and the routines and experiences that are essential for this age group.  Self-help skills, including toilet training, are highly individual and complex. YMCA staff will work closely with parents through this experience.
