The very youngest at our YMCA Child Learning Center have a special need for high quality programs and well trained staff.  Your baby needs close relationships with a small number of caring people in a safe and predictable setting.  The YMCA Child Learning Center offers this nurturing in an environment that best meets the needs of your child. Our infant classroom is for babies 6 weeks through 1 year.

Our staff develop an individualized schedule for your child based on their own specific needs and your family’s preferences.  We plan individual activities and exchanges with your infant every day, centering on daily routines such as morning and evening transitions, diapering, feeding, napping, and sensory-motor play.  Our teachers:

  • Use Baby Sign Language to enhance communication and speech development
  • Provide Tummy-time and buggy rides
  • Use Teaching Strategies:  Creative Curriculum
  • Sing songs and play actively with your baby

WADDLERS or mobile infants, ages 1-2 years-olds benefit from an environment where they can explore and utilize newly acquired motor skills.  Our classroom and activities are specially designed for the safety and mobility of this age group.  Flexible individualized care and group activities transition your infant into the toddler years.

  • Learning based activity areas
  • Weekly gym time
  • Age-appropriate outdoor play area
  • Daily communication sheets about your child’s day
