YMCA Child Care
As the largest not-for-profit provider of child care in Canada and with nearly 40 years of experience, the YMCA of Northern BC offers high-quality child care programs for infants, toddlers, preschool and school aged children. We understand that families have many demands and we believe that every child deserves a safe place to grow, which is why we offer a variety of options to meet every family’s needs. We know that choosing child care is a big decision and that parents want to know that their child is safe and well cared for while having fun- that your child care is a place your child wants to go every day.
Our highly trained Early Childhood Educators partner with parents to support each child’s development and provide families with the security of knowing their child is in a safe and nurturing environment during these formative years. The YMCA of Northern BC was awarded the 2014 Child Care Awards of Excellence by the Ministry of Children & Family Development for their outstanding work on behalf of children and families in Northern BC. YMCA Child Care is your child’s home away from home.
Early Learning and Care
YMCA Early Childhood Educators make play come alive with our YMCA Playing to Learn Curriculum in our infant and toddler care, group 3-5 care and preschool programs. We want to be there every step of the way through your child’s development, beginning with their most formative years. We know that the early years’ seeds are fundamental in your child’s future success. Our caring and experienced staff provide quality care to assure your child will learn, grow and thrive.
At YMCA School Age Care children 5 through 12 will become connected to their community with a true sense of belonging in a safe and fun place to spend their time before and after school. Children will spend their time engaged in active, healthy activities with enthusiastic and caring YMCA role models, including healthy snacks, homework help, and daily outdoor play. Our values-based program uses the fundamentals of YMCA Healthy Child Development by creating opportunities for play, health, and positive relationships to allow them to learn, grow and thrive!
YMCA Summer Club is the best way for school age children to spend their summer as our caring and enthusiastic staff guide your child’s development through fun and engaging programs, including field trips and weekly lake visits. Weekly themes ensure that the whole summer is filled with fun from start to finish as children laugh and play in our inclusive environment.
