licensed child care for toddlers

now located at the YMCA - 638 West Maumee street in Adrian



2 years and 6 months years of age



Our goal is to provide individualized care that nurtures and enhances your child’s development by offering “learning through play”.



At the YMCA Toddler program, we use the Creative Curriculum. The teachers focus intensely on the children's interests and work together with the kids to develop projects. Interactions of the children are observed to help the teachers understand their thinking and develop lessons that fosters their creativity.

Parental support, input and involvement are a high priority for the success of the program. In our respectful learning environment children learn to respect others, and begin to develop the YMCA character values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The YMCA educators will work together with our families to build trusting, welcoming and  supportive environment. 

Children are encouraged to explore and develop in all areas through learning centers around the classroom, providing a well rounded experience for each child while also allowing children to follow specific interests.

Our Early Childhood Educators model their love for learning by staying up to date on new developments in how children learn, grow and develop.
