  • Early Learning Center

    The New School Experience

    The staff at The Granite YMCA are extremely excited to have your child/ren attend our 2020 - 2021 child care program. As we prepare for these programs, we want to ensure all our families stay informed. Please review the documents below to learn more about the upcoming school year.


    Early Learning Center

    Open year round, registration for the YMCA's Early Learning Center is ongoing on a space-available basis. Acceptance from the Early Learning Center Director must be given to enroll for any Early Learning or Preschool Child Care programs. Sibling discounts are available.


    INFANT/TODDLER PROGRAM  |  6 Weeks – 2 Years

    At the Y, we know a child's first classroom experience will help to mold their future academic success. Our highly devoted teaching teams work hard to ignite every child's love of learning each and every day. Here in the infant and toddler classrooms, our children experience an array of developmentally appropriate activities such as role modeling positive social relationships, honing fine and gross motor skills, and an introduction to subjects like early mathematics and literacy. These rooms also make time to explore the outdoors and enjoy a healthy morning and afternoon snack to get our bodies ready for optimal learning.

    Available Programs:

    • The Bumblebee Room (Infants, 1 - 12 Months)
    • The Grasshopper Room (Toddlers, 12 - 22 Months)

    Contact Us to Learn More


    PRESCHOOL - PRE KINDERGARTEN  |  2 - 5 Years

    We understand that each child learns differently. Our low teacher-to-child ratios provide the opportunity for our highly trained teachers to get to know each child as an individual and customize their education to their interests in pursuit of an emergent curriculum. At the Y, we strive to provide our students with opportunities for hands on, open ended learning in order for them to grow as an individual, in addition to being a positive member of the classroom team. Our older classrooms enjoy gross motor activities, such as yoga and tumbling, in addition to special academic experiences. All of our programming at the Early Learning Center is rooted in the New Hampshire Early Learning Standards, with an emphasis on a play-based approach to mastery of Kindergarten Readiness Skills.

    Available Programs:

    • The Caterpillar Room (Preschool I, 22 - 32 Months)
    • The Ladybug Room (Preschool II, 32 - 42 Months)
    • The Dragonfly Room (Preschool III, 42 - 50 Months)
    • The Butterfly Room (Pre-Kindergarten, 50 - 72 Months)

  • Financial Assistance

    Financial Assistance

    At the Y, we do offer financial assistance for those families in need. We also accept State of New Hampshire reimbursements. Proof of assistance and a completed child care provider form (2530) must be provided at time of registration. All families who receive financial assistance, whether through the Y or the State, must also stay current with their payments. Families are responsible for all fees not paid by the state. The state will not generally pay for any absences, nor will they pay late or no-call fees, or for days in which your child is picked up early and does not attend the minimum number of hours.

    To learn more, please contact your local Y’s Child Care Department.
