Toddler/Pre-K1 Care

The YMCA Toddler/Pre-K1 Care Program will provide a warm and nurturing program in a gentle environment. This program will encourage your child’s emerging skills and capabilities. We understand that each child is unique in his/her development. Our trained staff will stimulate your child’s brain growth through reading and music. As your child matures and grows, we will supply a rich environment with a variety of experiences, including hands-on experiences and physical activities.
