Our two new child care centres come with big backyards!

We’ve been in the child care business for over 20 years and we believe that experiences in the early years have life-long impact.  By adding two new child development centres to our early years offerings, we’re giving young Calgarians more opportunities to have a great start in life.  There are now five YMCA licensed child care centres to choose from.

Our new centres offer quality care, bright spaces and access to multiple opportunities for active, play-based learning and to become school-ready.  Read more about our new centres below.

Our licensed child care centres are staffed by professional, qualified and experienced caregivers who apply best practices in healthy child development and play-based learning, making your child’s stay both fun and beneficial.
