“Offering safe and high-quality child care, the brand-new centre will feature indoor and outdoor spaces that use natural elements, including neutral wall colors, wood, plants, stepping stones, paths and more. Caring and dedicated staff will follow YMCA Playing to Learn, a national YMCA play-based curriculum that aligns with primary school benchmarks and will prepare your child for Kindergarten, while inspiring healthy activity and encouraging them to explore their individual interests,” stated the press release.

A financial assistance program is available to ensure the programs are accessible for everyone. Qualifying families can apply for financial assistance from the Y and the Affordable Child Care Benefit from the provincial government. Visit ymcaokanagan.ca for details
