Child Care

Before & After School Care

"Excellent care. I feel my children are secure and very well taken care of at the after school program. There is a good variety of activity and healthy snacks. A wonderful program, thank you!"

Your YMCA offers Extended Care programs at participating Bluewater District and Bruce-Grey Catholic schools for children in Junior Kindergarten (JK) to Grade 6. To fill the gaps after the bell rings, you'll find unique YMCA programming right here in your community. We know children thrive in an environment where everyone belongs and can explore, learn and have fun together.  That's what we provide at the YMCA.
