Toddler Child Care

Mobile – 3 Years

In YMCA Preschool, toddlers watch and absorb knowledge and skills from everything and everyone around them. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves.

Our toddler programs are centered around each child’s daily schedule. Children in these programs will continue to develop their gross and fine motor skills. Daily activities include cooperative playtime, art, outside excursions, naps and an abundance of hugs from the staff. Toddlers will also hear plenty of stories and songs that foster their language development. In addition, this program also offers older toddlers an introduction to water through occasional trips to our zero-entry family pool.

Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is an international comprehensive classroom management program and social-emotional curriculum developed by Dr. Becky Bailey. YMCA childcare staff are guided through intensive training based on current brain research, child development information and developmentally appropriate practices.

Conscious Discipline utilizes character education curriculum and challenging situations to teach the following life skills: Anger Management, Helpfulness (pro-social skills), Assertiveness, Impulse Control, Cooperation, Empathy, Problem Solving and Real-Life Conflict. The YMCA Early Learning program believes that character education is a part of everyday life.
