At the YMCA of Okanagan, we are always looking for individuals who are passionate about working with children to join our team of early educators. If you see yourself working in a setting that provides care and learning for children in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment, we want to hear from you.  

Whether you are already an early childhood educator, or you are simply interested in the field, we will help you grow your career working with children. At the Y, we are committed to providing a work environment where early childhood educators can expand their ECE practice and grow their leadership skills, all while making an impact on the lives of local children and families. We’ll even pay for your education. 

Being a local charity, the YMCA of Okanagan is so much more than a space to drop your child off every day. The Y is a collective community devoted to helping children and families thrive. With a focus on health and wellbeing, along with an exceptional, proven Playing to Learn curriculum — a unique forward-thinking approach to early education of children — we will help your child explore with curiosity, create without limits, build lasting friendships reach their full potential.

As well, the Y ensures every family can access child care, no matter their financial means. Currently 1 in 5 children enrolled in YMCA Child Care are accessing financial assistance. 

Help us make a difference. Join our team.
