We are proud to operate the Young Parent Program at Kelowna Secondary School, in partnership with Central Okanagan Schools. This community program provides parents under the age of 20 with the fundamental tools they need to thrive.

YMCA Child Care

Raise healthy, resilient kids with support from YMCA Child Care.

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.

Our YMCA Licensed Child Care centres are a home away from home. We offer an inclusive community where kids 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! At the Y, you'll find a group of caring and dedicated staff who make every day a special day for your child.

As a charity, we make no profit from any of our Child Care programs.
