Ages 6 weeks - age 2 | Our programs for Infants and Toddlers feature low, child to adult ratios and the type of care parents have come to expect from YMCA staff. Our classrooms include cribs, changing tables and individualized care for children.


YMCA of Bucks County New Britain Child Care Center offers programs for children 2 yrs to Pre-K. The Preschool builds on a child's natural desire to learn new things and become more self-reliant. Getting along with other children, sharing, taking turns and working in a group are a natural part of playing games or learning a new craft.
