The Y's focus is on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. At the YMCA of Greater Hartford, the goal of our child development programs is to nurture young people by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-confidence.
The YMCA of Greater Hartford uses the Early Learning Development Standards (ELDS) for infant, toddler and preschool children by the Connecticut Department of Education. These standards align with the common core, preparing children for kindergarten and life. All early childhood sites are accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), as well as funded by the State Department of Education.
The East Hartford YMCA's Toddler program is held at:

East Hartford, CT 06118
