Berkeley Heights YMCA Childcare & Early Education

 

 

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn fundamental skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

(Ages 3-5) Preschool

The Y Program prides itself on being much more than just day care. Our program stimulates interest and creates awareness of different people, objects and experiences through the use of cooking, music, science, nature, swim and gym, computers, arts and crafts, story-time, and dramatic play. (Child must be potty trained). Before enrollment is accepted, a parent/child visit is required. Full day and half day options are available.
