Full Day Child Care
AGES: 8 weeks – 5 years
At the Y, we offer a safe, nurturing environment for infants and children to learn and grow. The Y supports their social-emotional, cognitive and physical development. When you know your child is well cared for, you and your family have the opportunity to focus at work, plan healthy meals, enjoy family activities and establish a routine. Please take a look at our brochure: Valley Y 2021 2022 ELC Brochure
Our programs are NAEYC accredited and state-licensed allowing parents to go to work with peace of mind knowing that their children are being cared for in a safe, structured and fun environment.
Safety is our first priority. All Central Connecticut Coast YMCA child care programs are following all the guidelines set by the CDC, CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC), Y-USA, and other sources to ensure our policies and procedures are aligned to keep our children, staff and volunteers healthy and safe. 2021 Early Learning Center Safety Plan
