The Moultrie Y Childcare Center is a state licensed facility through Bright From the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning that offers quality childcare for children 6 weeks to 4 years of age.
The Childcare Center hours are from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. We serve USDA approved meals (including breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack).
Y membership is not required. There are openings or waiting lists for every room.
The infant room is filled with love, nurturing, playing, reading, music and more. Our teachers use a curriculum from HighReach Learning that uses a different packet each month filled with instructions on how to work with an infant on their fine and large motor skills, books and puppets for reading and interacting, games and more. Typically, a child ages 6 weeks - 7 months is cared for in this room.
The Crawler Room is a transition class for children who are skilled enough to crawl, yet not quite ready to move up to the Toddler Room. These little ones have their own playground and bye-bye buggies for walks around the Y's campus. Typically, a child is 7 months - 14 months old in this classroom.
On a typical day, this room stays at it's capacity of 14 children. Toddler teachers work hard keeping up with their newly mobile little ones. The teachers use Building Blocks curriculum to teach your children in the most effective way. The Toddler Room has its own playground and bye-bye buggies. The toddler room also encourages potty training. Typically, a child is 14 months - 22 months in this classroom.
Two Year Old Room
The Y has 2 two year old classrooms. These classes are full of curious, eager to learn two-year-olds. We use the Building Blocks curriculum in this room as well. The children learn their months, colors, numbers, days of the week, and some Spanish as well as many other things. The curriculum teaches the children how to use their words and interact in a positive way with their peers. The 2-year old classes also encourage potty training.
Three Year Old Room
In our three year old classroom, children are taught the months of the year, the seasons, colors, numbers, etc. and how to write their name. Our teachers are getting these 3-year olds ready for Pre-K! The children are also learning how to interact with their peers in a positive way. They focus on a community helper each month along with a community service project.
