Y Childcare

Infants 6 weeks - 18 months
4:1   Child to Staff Ratio
We provide a caring and nurturing environment for infants.  Floor play, tummy time, story time, music appreciation, finger play and arts & crafts are all part of your child’s experience.  Our goals for the children are to help them reach all of their major developmental milestones like sitting up, rolling over, crawling, and walking.  

Toddlers 19 months - 36 months

5:1   Child to Staff Ratio
During the toddler stage, a child learns a great deal about social roles, develops motor skills, and first starts to actively use language to express themselves.  At the Y we provide an accepting environment that allows children to grow and experience each one of these stages.  Each day follows a predictable schedule that includes indoor & outdoor play, circle time, music   appreciation, story time, hands on art and weekly dance and swim lessons. Teachers facilitate sharing and positive communication among the children by teaching and modeling acceptable behaviors. 

Preschool 3+

-Threes,7:1 Child to Staff Ratio

Each day includes indoor/outdoor play, circle time, music, story time, art, science, math, weekly dance and swim lessons.
