Playing To Learn

YMCA Early Learning and Care programs are designed to nurture the development of your child in all areas through our YMCA Playing to Learn™ curriculum.

Playing to Learn encourages engagement, social interaction, imagination, a joy of learning, and will nourish the connection between learning and play, as well as your child’s holistic development and wellbeing.

For A Healthy Start

Outdoor and Loose Parts Play

Your child will be encouraged to engage with their environment in all seasons for a minimum of one hour per day (weather depending) on our outdoor rooftop playground.

This open-ended play environment provides your child an opportunity to engage in free and unstructured play in a natural setting. When children are encouraged to explore without intrinsic goals, they become problem solvers, gain confidence, and learn to collaborate.

Communication and Insight

Gaining deeper insights into your child’s unique interests, needs and abilities is easier than ever with Storytime.

It is a secure and private app which allows educators to post updates on your child’s day complete with photos and videos, learning and development stories, newsletters, notices as well as communicate important news to you in real time.

Snacks and Menus

Your child receives quality, chef-prepared morning and afternoon snacks on a four-week menu rotation that is available to parents in advance.
