Why YMCA Child Care?

We believe that the best way to nurture the growth and development of children is through something that comes natural to them... through playing!

There's no job more important in the world than being a parent. But when it's not your only job, our YMCA Child Care programs are here for your family.

We know childhood is a special time when the seeds of future success are planted. Our YMCA Child Care programs are based on curriculum that encourages the physical, mental and social development of your child.  

As Canada’s largest child care provider, the health and well-being of your child is at the core of everything we do. At the Y, you'll find a group of caring and dedicated staff who make every day a special day for your child.

After School Care

End every school day with the YMCA! To fill the gaps before and after the bell rings, you'll find unique YMCA programming right here in your community. We know children thrive in an environment where everyone belongs and can explore, learn and have fun together. And that's what you'll find at the YMCA.
