Child Development

Where our community’s kids learn, grow, and thrive

The Tom Hargrove & Anita Grover, MD Child Development Center at the New Canaan YMCA supports our community’s families through child-care programs for children ages 6 weeks through sixth grade.

Each of our child-care programs works to develop the whole child: socially, cognitively, emotionally, and physically, and to provide children with the opportunity to learn and grow, while taking advantage of all our Y has to offer.  Our qualified staff provides an engaging, nurturing, and supportive environment for each of our children and families.

For additional information about one of our child development programs, contact Cathy McClure, Childcare Director at 203-920-1613 or by email.
