Early Learning and Childcare

YWCA’s Early Learning and Childcare Centers offer early education to children, infants (six weeks) through preschool age. Our full-day, full-year nationally accredited programs (NAEYC) in Hartford, East Hartford, West Hartford, offer affordable, convenient, high-quality early childhood education that fosters a life-long love of learning. Our newest center in South Windsor is in the process of applying for accreditation.

Through active play, exploration, discovery, social interactions, and hands-on activities, our early learning programs cultivate each child’s social/emotional, physical and intellectual development. While promoting a climate of cooperation and respect, we embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of each and every child!
