The YMCA believes in the power of physical activity and encouraging healthy lifestyles. We encourage children to develop their gross motor skills in the following areas:
Swim: We are lucky to have a swimming pool located in our facility! Each YMCA classroom has a free-swim time slot each week in the pool, with outside centres having a time slot each month. During this time, the children to develop their confidence in the water.
Classroom educators are in the pool, and the pools are guarded by lifeguards.
Gym: During gym time the children have the option of participating in structured games, or to use it as a free space to run and play.
Sneakers are required for gym days.
Outdoor Play: The children participate in a variety of outdoor learning experiences. Throughout each week, the children go on walks, play on the play structure, participate in sports and circle games, and much more. Each class has scheduled outside time throughout the week.
Snacks are required to be sent daily. On Wednesdays and full-days Lunch must be sent. For the health and safety of all children and staff who have life-threatening allergies, guardians are required to ensure lunches and snacks packed for children are 100% nut free. Families must alert the YMCA Staff of any allergies your child may have.
