Three reasons to trust your child's care to the YMCA
YMCA Playing to Learn
YMCA Playing to Learn is a national YMCA curriculum that helps children discover learning through creative play and aligns with primary school benchmarks.
Play is the foundation for learning to read and write, and for learning mathematics, science and technology. Our curriculum fosters a child's enthusiasm and capacity for lifelong learning making it a key reason parents choose YMCA Child Care.
In our care, your child will learn through story time, playing with blocks, counting and comparing items, creating pictures, singing, make-believe, exploring and investigating their world.
YMCA Child Care operates with consistent best practices and standards across the country.
All YMCA Child Care programs are licensed under the Child Care Early Years Act with regular evaluation to ensure quality in Child Care practices. They are also inspected annually to confirm compliance by Ministry standards.
As a YMCA program, you can trust that we’re committed to:
- Supporting and strengthening families like yours
- Promoting the core values of belonging, caring, honesty, respect and responsibility
- Caring for your child in a safe, positive environment
- Helping your child develop to their fullest potential during those crucial early years.
