Playing to Learn Preschool

Based on research and evidence that play is the most effective way that children learn, YMCA Playing to Learn is applied to all Y Child Care programs.

Let's Play

The Y’s approach to child care is unique. We believe that ensuring a sound basis for healthy child development and success begins with play, and our child care programs give children exactly that — space to run, dance, jump and explore.

As western Canada’s largest licensed child care provider, the YMCA has been building and operating high-quality child care spaces for decades. Every program provides children with the opportunity to be active, make friends, have fun and develop confidence.

Furthermore, the health and safety of kids in our care is our top priority. All staff are trained in YMCA Child Protection standards that far surpass licensing regulations.

And finally, what makes the Y truly stand out is that we are a charity that believes financial circumstances shouldn't stand in the way of receiving quality care for your child. As a charity, the YMCA of Okanagan has always provided financial assistance to those in need. In addition, with new government supports in place, child care is becoming more affordable.

At the YMCA, we are helping BC parents raise healthy, resilient children.

Child Care Financial Assistance

As a charity, the Y believes no family should be turned away because of financial circumstances. Thanks to generous donors, the Y is able to provide financial assistance to families who could not otherwise afford quality child care or Preschool programs.
