Child Care Standards
The YMCA provides quality childcare by employing qualified educators who fulfill our high expectations for program delivery. All YMCA Preschool and School Age programs are licensed by the province and adhere to, or exceed in many cases, requirements.
Our centre is fully licensed for 50 children (aged 18 months to 5 years) and 53 children in our After School Programs.
Our dedicated staff have personal qualities of friendliness, warmth, and the ability to relate openly to children. The staff are certified by an Early Childhood Education training facility and have appropriate First Aid training. We also strive to have our substitute teachers and program volunteers appropriately trained.
All staff, substitutes and volunteers are screened through the Child Abuse registry and police checks.
