Summer sees a change to operations within YMCA Calgary Childcare Centres and Child Minding Areas. And, this change might be just what you are looking for to enhance your child’s summer experience.
Childcare and Child Minding each offer unique experiences – read on to learn more and to see if you would like to explore available options further.
YMCA Childcare and Child Minding – where kids play and learn!
Childcare: Licensed childcare for children aged 19 months – 6 years
Temporary openings are available for 1/2 or full days over the summer months. This option is available due to turnover within the centre as older children leave in preparation for kindergarten and new children have not yet started. All days may not have availability.
This may be an option for families who need a few days or a week of care for their child over the summer. It may also be a fit for a child attending a 1/2 day of camp and then requiring childcare for the balance of the day.
As always, full-time permanent spaces in our centres will be filled from our existing waitlists.
Availability is limited and inquiries should be directed to each centre’s Childcare Director:
Eau Claire – Margaret Ferriss T 403-781-1666
Saddletowne- Merle Clarke T 403-537-2722
Shawnessy – Trudy Halvorsen T 403-254-3211
Child Minding: Short term care for your child aged 6 weeks – 10 years
This is the place for kids to be while their parent/guardian is using the facility. Equipped with toys, games and caring adults who love to spend time talking and playing with children you can feel confident that your child is well cared for while you are furthering your own health and wellness goals.
During the summer all of our areas see a decrease in usage which can open up opportunities for casual bookings. Member children 6 weeks – 35 months are FREE while a minimal charge applies to both older member children and non-members.
