Attleboro Norton YMCA Child Development Centers

Serving families and children from infancy through 5th grade

Now enrolling for September 2021

We consider it a great privilege every time families choose the Attleboro Norton YMCA to be their child care partner. At the Y, we aim to provide more than just great care. Our goal is to support children and their families as they develop and grow.

In addition to providing engaging, age-appropriate learning activities, our child development programs also focus on socialization, physical activity, social-emotional development, and ensuring that each child feels a sense of belonging and achievement to promote self-confidence and overall well-being.

We also know that the best way to develop healthy and happy kids is by doing what we can to support YOU – their families and caregivers. That’s why our Child Development Centers offer opportunities for families to socialize and connect with one another. It’s also the reason why we encourage caregivers to take some time to focus on their own physical and mental well-being with memberships and fitness opportunities at the Y.


The Y’s Child Development Centers provide:

  • Developmentally appropriate and stimulating learning experiences led by certified teachers and assistants
  • Daily physical activity in our gymnasiums or outdoor play spaces
  • Swim lessons and water safety included with our programs
  • Enrichment programming, such as arts, fitness, dance, sports, music, and more
  • Convenience of location near the commuter rail, businesses, and the Attleboro Corporate Campus with two centers at our Downtown Branch and Pleasant Street Branch
  • The opportunity for families to access care for all of their children from 6 weeks to 5th grade at one location
  • Family programming throughout the school year
  • Easy access for parents and caregivers to workout and stay healthy
  • Discounts on other YMCA programming
  • Financial Assistance and Vouchers
