The YMCA Child Care Centres works to ensure that every child has the ability to fulfill their potential.
YMCA Child Care operates with consistent best practices and standards across the country. We employ qualified educators who fulfill our high expectations for program delivery. All YMCA Child Care programs are licensed under Early Learning and Child Care Act and with regular evaluation to ensure quality in Child Care practices; the YMCA adheres to, or in many cases exceeds, requirements.
They are also inspected annually to confirm compliance by Ministry standards.
Our dedicated staff have personal qualities of friendliness, warmth, and the ability to relate openly to children. The staff are certified by an Early Childhood Education training facility and have appropriate First Aid training. We also strive to have our substitute teachers and program volunteers appropriately trained.
All staff, substitutes and volunteers are screened through the Child Abuse registry and police checks.
We build strong kids, strong families and strong communities through programs that teach the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We believe that children are never too young to learn that character counts!
The philosophy of the our YMCA Child Care Centres is to provide support to parents and to promote the development of the whole child by providing a carefully planned, age appropriate, stimulating and child-centred play environment.
A variety of opportunities will be provided to ensure effective communication between parents and our teachers:
More than one child? Please submit a separate entry for each child on the waitlist form.
Weemarkable is the window into your little one’s day, from wherever you are. It keeps your mind at ease with the ability to access important childcare notices, photos, milestones, educator observations, menu information and direct to educator messaging with just a tap.
We are committed to eliminating financial barriers and providing everyone the opportunity to participate in YMCA programs and services. A YMCA financially assisted membership offers access to the same facilities, programs, and services at a reduced rate.
