Childcare Programs

Our YMCA Child Care Centre WELCOMES you! #ILoveMyY #ymcachildcare #September

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.

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.

We know childhood is a special time when the seeds of future success are planted. The aim of the YMCA of Fredericton Child Care Centre is to provide the highest quality of care for children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old. We follow both the YMCA Play to Learn curriculum and NB Curriculum framework, which are play-based learning curriculums. Our program objective is to help young children grow mentally, physically, socially and emotionally at their own pace. We offer exploration in science, numeracy, literacy, art, music and drama. Our program is rounded with daily physical activity, making use of our outdoor spaces as well as our gymnasium and studios. In addition, children in our early learning programs receive one instructed swimming lesson per week.

Please see our YMCA of Fredericton Early Learning Handbook
