YMCA Calgary Child Care Centres

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.

YMCA Calgary operates licensed child care centres in five of our YMCA Health & Wellness Centres: Gray Family Eau Claire, Remington, Saddletowne, Shane Homes and Shawnessy. We also have a stand-alone centre located in the Quarry Park community. Scroll down for locations and details

Children participating in YMCA Child Care Centres have the opportunity to swim, play in the gym, go on outings and field trips, and participate in play-based learning activities that are developmentally appropriate and which prepare them for kindergarten readiness.

Registration Policies (Full-time Care)

  • Pre-authorized payments are required at the time of registration.
  • A $600 deposit is required at time of registration; deposit will be returned with minimum 45-days notice of cancellation.
  • Financial Assistance is available for qualifying families through Alberta Children’s Services and YMCA Calgary once a child is registered in the centre.
  • YMCA Child Care Fees are reviewed annually each Fall. Any changes to fees are communicated to families a minimum of six weeks in advance.
  • Waiting List: There is a non-refundable $50/family waiting list fee at each centre. Call or visit one of the centres for more information. Please note – registration on waitlists is limited and space may not be available. Placement on the waitlist does not guarantee a childcare space as we must place children of the correct age into the available space in order to maintain licensing requirements. Note: A family may register on ONE additional centre’s waitlist at $0 charge. Please speak with the Child Care Director at the location(s) you are interested in.
