We know that kids need much more than just immediate family to grow up strong. Our child care programs provide children ages 0-12 with the care and support they need to reach their full potential. Our programs offer environments that are safe and stimulating, with caring, supportive caregivers. Children are provided with opportunities to learn, grow and have fun alongside their peers.
Choosing a child care provider is a big decision—you want your child to be nurtured and cared for as well as you would do yourself. Let us be a part of your family!
At the YMCA, we want to make sure that all children and families have an opportunity to live healthier lives. That’s why we offer financial assistance, which helps children and families access YMCA programs they are unable to afford on their own. Your family may also qualify for child care subsidy through the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Please visit the MCFD website or contact 1-888-338-6622 to learn more.
