Early Learning Child Care

Love, laughter and growth; at our Early Learning Child Care locations your little one takes part in programs that provide individual attention and warm encouragement.

Our dedicated child care staff provide children with the support they need to make a seamless transition into full-day Kindergarten. We partner with parents to support their child’s development and provide families with the security of knowing that their child is in a safe and nurturing environment during these formative years. With locations in Owen Sound, Hanover, Port Elgin, Kincardine and Ripley, our Early Learning Child Care Centres are in communities across Grey Bruce.

YMCA Playing to Learn™ Curriculum

Here to help your little one discover the world through play and imagination, our YMCA Playing to Learn™ Curriculum offers kids an opportunity to develop their confidence, self-direction and self-regulation. Using play as the primary learning medium, children are introduced to literacy, numeracy, arts, science, and more, while in our care to ensure a smooth transition into primary school.

The window into your little one’s day – from wherever you are!

Today’s families are busier than ever. We’re making it easier for our YMCA Child Care families to connect to the small moments and big milestones of their child’s day, through our YMCA app, Weemarkable™. It keeps your mind at ease and helps you share in the fun your child has throughout the day, with messages and photos, access to important child care notices, educator observations, milestones, menu information and direct to educator messaging. 

All at just a tap. And most importantly, even when you can’t be with them, it’s Weemarkable™ how connected you’ll be.
