CHESTERTON | The Duneland Family YMCA's Early Childhood Development program is focused on providing an environment that is safe, caring, and respectful of each child and his or her family while supporting each child’s developmental growth.

The infant and 1-year-old class room in Chesterton Middle School focuses on what most parents focus on at that age: learning how to crawl, walk, talk, play, share and dance. Flash cards, songs, books, sign language, discovery and hands on crafts are integrated throughout the learning process.

At the Y, there is no such thing as the terrible 2s because sharing, caring, respect and responsibility are taught early on in the program to assist with lessons in potty training, sign language, Spanish, letters, numbers, colors and shapes.

Making learning fun is a key component of the 4-year-old room. Singing, dancing, and game play are integrated into the curriculum while learning the calendar, shapes, letters and numbers. Science experiments, food crafts and stories all make the day fun and fly by.

For more information on financial assistance and to take a tour of the Early Childhood Development Center, call (219) 921-0183. More information also is available at www.DunelandYMCA.org.
