Our Early Childhood Education and Child Care programs provide nurturing, stimulating and happy environments where children feel secure to explore the world around them. Our comprehensive daycare programs offer parents consistency and continuity in care though our infant, toddler and preschool programs, as well as in our after school programs, which are for children in kindergarten through middle school. Working parents can enjoy peace of mind confident that their child is well-cared for and safe at the YMCA, the largest nonprofit provider of child care in the country.
We are proud to be a part of Healthy U, an award-winning, statewide initiative to combat childhood obesity in the child care setting. The Healthy U program uses the CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) Curriculum to educate children about healthy eating and incorporates 30 minutes of physical activity at least three times during the week. The program also provides parents with valuable tips and suggestions to use at home for overall family wellness.
We accommodate full-time and part-time schedules in our fully-licensed child care and preschool facilities. Enrollment takes place on an ongoing basis. We encourage you to tour our daycare centers at Hillsborough YMCA, Somerset Hills YMCA and Somerville YMCA.
