Preschool and Early Care

Preschool and Early Care (0–5)

Our licensed child care centres provide high quality care for your children in a stimulating environment so they can learn, grow and thrive. Your child will build a foundation for academic success through the national YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum.

School-Age Care

School-Age Care (5–12)

It's important for children to have a safe, engaging place to go before and after school. Qualified leaders will keep your child happy, nourished and active with healthy snacks, outdoor play, homework time, field trips, social skill-building games, arts, crafts and more.

The YMCA of Okanagan is excited to be expanding our child care services to the South Okanagan with our newest centre at Queen’s Park Elementary School in Penticton, BC. With 59 new spaces for children 6 weeks of age to 12 years-old, this centre offers infant care, preschool, 3–5 child care, before and after school care and provides day camps during spring break, summer and pro-days.
