We will be monitoring requests for child minding and Zoned In services; however, currently these services remain suspended until further notice. We are currently assessing space and safety protocols for these programs. In the meantime, our Active Kids Rec Sessions can be used in place of Zoned In, and we hope to be able to offer Zoned In and child minding in the near future. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.

YMCA child members can access the pool at any time (within the established access systems once it reopens on August 10), along with drop-in style recreation programs which are free with membership! COVID-19 restrictions have limited children's ability to engage in physical activity and play with their friends. Our focus is to get kids active and interactive at the Y this summer, and we are looking at even more options for the fall. Our Active Kids Rec Sessions can be used in place of Zoned In! And we hope to be able to offer Zoned In and child minding in the future. We are currently assessing space and safety protocols for these programs. Visit our summer programs page for more details on programs offered this summer. We will be providing more information on the reopening of our pools soon.

At this time, to ensure proper 2-metre physical distancing within the Kelowna Family Y, we have had to adapt our gymnasium based on capacity restrictions and wellness programming. We will not be offering drop-in sports during the summer and will revisit this as we know more about the risk of this pandemic in our community. We will continue to follow this pandemic closely and assess our local community's needs.

Yes! YMCA Preschool is open within the Kelowna Family Y and our child care team is now accepting registration for September. This program is for children ages 3–5 years old. Spaces are currently available in all four programs including M/W/F and T/Th groups, for both morning and afternoons. This trusted program and proven Playing to Learn Curriculum will prepare your child for kindergarten while keeping them active, social and engaged. Children in all YMCA child care programs receive a free YMCA child membership to access more programs for their health and development.
