Infant & Toddler

Infants and toddlers grow and learn every day.  The childcare program for infants and toddlers at YWCA New Britain is designed to provide children ages six weeks to three years of age with a safe and nurturing environment where they can explore and make new discoveries.  Infants and toddlers learn about themselves, their feelings, communication, and movement.  Children learn through play and acquire the basic skills that will serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

While it can be difficult to make this first transition away from home, we are committed to making it as easy and natural as possible.  We aim to provide children with developmentally appropriate activities and experiences which will help to enhance their growth and development.

"My daughter has been enrolled in the Infant/Toddler program from age four months on.  I credit the program with significantly increasing her vocabulary, she is measuring above average in comprehension and language skills.  Being an only child, the Infant/Toddler program also gives her the ability to socialize with kids her age, and I couldn’t be happier with the caring and professional teachers she has."  

-Valerie Cammarota, childcare parent
