This child-centered program provides opportunities for growth, hands-on exploration and child-led learning. The Y is an NAEYC Accredited, Keystone Star 4 Center, licensed by the Department of Public Welfare which strives to promote best practices. Care begins at six-weeks of age with nurturing staff and a safe environment. At 12-months and walking, children transition to our toddler room where exploration, social skills and language development are key focus points. As skills develop, older toddlers starting at 24-months, begin to work on toilet training. Older toddlers participate in weekly Animal Yoga.
