See how we have updated our policies to better care for your children during the pandemic:
Childcare at the Torrington Y

Children who are enrolled in Childcare and are Facility Members receive 10% off all YMCA Programs.
New Y Student Support Center (YSSC)
Our Torrington YSSC is offering the solution to your school-year schedule. We offer before & after school care, as well as distance & hybrid learning programs for children 5 -12 yrs old. The schedule of the day will vary to accommodate specific distance learning schedules, and will include enrichment activities such as outdoor play, games in the gym, swimming, art and science activities in the classroom.*
We believe our center will provide a learning environment that will encourage greater engagement, promote positive social connections and increase the student’s sense of belonging, all of which can be lost in a virtual learning experience.
Scheduled school half days are also included with the program.
*These activities are subject to change due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Our highly-skilled and caring staff provide early care and education for children 6 weeks – 3 years. We provide your child with a program that focuses on each child’s developmental level. Through a variety of daily activities, each child will have an opportunity to explore his or her environment while building a solid skill set for later learning.
Each infant is assigned a primary caregiver responsible for all daily activities, feedings, etc. Children are kept on their own unique schedules and we work closely with parents to foster new skills and reach developmental milestones.
The Toddler program consists of developmentally appropriate daily activities for two-year-olds, such as circle time, outside time, art and sensory time. Toddlers learn through play and teacher-directed projects.
The Y is the National Leader in Child Care. Our state licensed and NAEYC accredited program brings out the best in children. The Y provides safe, reliable, and convenient child care in a stimulating environment. Our teachers incorporate the Y’s core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in daily lessons. The schedules provide ample opportunities to socialize, build language/math skills, and express creativity in play and projects. Children are assessed continually, and guided toward developmental benchmarks.
Before and After School Care
Torrington Y before and after school program for children 5 -12 yrs. The program offers children fun and educational activities, as well as time for
homework and quiet reading. Our highly qualified staff facilitate the children’s learning through a variety of active and quiet activities.
Kids learn better when they exercise and eat right. Regular physical activity, healthy snacks, and swim time included. *These activities are subject to change due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Full day programs are available in Torrington during school vacations and snow days.
