Teachers in YMCA infant programs strive to attain balance and harmony with your infant’s home schedule. This means that we work with families to establish the right eating and sleeping routines for your child. Infants learn through active, hands-on play. Grabbing plastic rings, rolling on a soft blanket, making a toy squeak— what fun! Our infant classrooms allow crawlers to move around freely in a safe space, babies can reach and explore objects—a key to learning. The YMCA provides formula, food and baby wipes. Families are asked to provide diapers or pull-ups and an extra set of clothes.

Early Head Start Program
