The YMCA of Downtown Manchester nurtures the potential of every child by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. Child care offerings include:

INFANTS/TODDLERS (6 MONTHS - 3 YEARS)
Our highly devoted team work hard to ignite every child's love of learning each and every day. In the toddler classroom, children experience an array of developmentally appropriate activities, such as role modeling positive social relationships, honing fine and gross motor skills, and an introduction to subjects like early mathematics and literacy. The toddler rooms also make time to explore the outdoors and enjoy a healthy morning and afternoon snack to get our bodies ready for optimal learning.

PRE-K & KINDERGARTEN (3 YEARS - 6 YEARS)
We strive to provide our students with opportunities for hands on, open ended learning in order for them to grow as an individual, in addition to being a positive member of the classroom team. Our 3 older classrooms enjoy gross motor activities, such as yoga and tumbling, in addition to special academic experiences.
