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.

We know childhood is a special time when the seeds of future success are planted. Our YMCA Child Care programs are based on curriculum that encourages the physical, mental and social development of your child.  

As Canada’s largest child care provider, the health and well-being of your child is at the core of everything we do. At the Y, you'll find a group of caring and dedicated educators who make every day a special day for your child.
