Entering Grades 1–6

(Entering Grades 1–6) Our licensed YMCA Child Care centres are a home away from home. Your child can be a part of our inclusive community where he or she can have fun, find support, make friends and reach their full potential.

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 kids exactly that — space to run, dance, jump, and explore — a place where kids can be kids!

Each day, children spend time outdoors, engage in plenty of physical activity, eat nutritious snacks, and build relationships with friends and adults. Each week, children will swim, explore our community during interactive field trips and participate in rich science experiments. These experiences will help them establish a foundation for their mental, emotional and physical well-being.

In addition to YMCA Financial Assistance, families who cannot afford the full cost of licensed YMCA Child Care can also apply for the Affordable Child Care Benefit. Learn more
