Baby & Toddler Groups

The YMCA is the leading provider of early years and children’s activities in the south of England, offering the perfect platform for your child’s growth in one of our Baby & Toddler Groups.

Our mission is to ‘champion and add value to young lives by providing experiences that challenge, enable and develop the individual’.

We provide the following baby and toddler group services on the island:

  • Newport Baby & Toddler Group – a welcoming environment to meet and make new friends. Make the most of the nursery’s lovely secure garden, perfect for tiny toes and exploring fingers, and a light airy indoor environment for a whole range of play activities.
  • Shanklin Baby & Toddler Group – an ideal setting for the under 3s, with a lovely secure garden offering a safe space for babies and toddlers to roam and explore.  The light and airy Caterpillar room is perfect for play activities including messy play, music and movement, songs, stories and much more.

In both Parent & Toddler Groups, parents can get useful information and advice from staff and each other, and through regular visits from representatives from the local Children’s Centre and Family Information Zone.

We also provide valuable services in the same location at our Newport and Shanklin nurseries and the next step in your child’s development at Daycamps in Shanklin.
