Adventures in Learning
Ages 1-3 Years Old.
At the YMCA Learning Center, toddlers watch and absorb knowledge, and skills from everything and everyone around them. They move, discover, and play in our toddler classrooms. We provide guidance as they develop their skills, gain independence, and master milestones. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. Toddler classrooms maintain a ratio of 1 adult: 5 toddlers. Ratio for 30-36 Months - 1 adult: 7 toddlers.
Our child care staff are experienced, trained professionals chosen for their warmth, creativity, experience with children, and commitment to excellence.

Accreditation has grown rapidly through the years. NAEYC Accreditation has been, and continues to be, the mark of quality in early childhood education.
Our center has been accredited by the NAEYC since February, 2001. We are the only NAEYC Accredited center in Ripley, Franklin, and Decatur County.
