YMCA School-Age Child Care
Also known as before-and-after school care, YMCA School Age Child Care gives parents peace of mind. Each program is based out of the school the child attends, thereby providing them with a seamless day in one location. Every program is staffed by YMCA trained professionals, selected for their educational background and aptitude for working with children. The end result is a safe, nurturing environment to begin and end their day at school.
There are a total of 73 school age programs offered throughout Hamilton, Burlington and Brantford. To find out if YMCA School Age Child Care is offered at your child’s school, click on the following links.
