The Y’s approach to child care is unique. We believe that ensuring a sound basis for healthy child development and success begins with play, and our child care programs give children exactly that — space to run, dance, jump and explore.

As western Canada’s largest licensed child care provider, the YMCA has been building and operating high-quality child care spaces for decades. Every program provides children with the opportunity to be active, make friends, have fun and develop confidence.

Furthermore, the health and safety of kids in our care is our top priority. All staff are trained in YMCA Child Protection standards that far surpass licensing regulations.

And finally, what makes the Y truly stand out is that we are a charity that believes financial circumstances shouldn't stand in the way of receiving quality care for your child. As a charity, the YMCA of Southern Interior BC has always provided financial assistance to those in need. In addition, with new government supports in place, child care is becoming more affordable.

At the YMCA, we are helping BC parents raise healthy, resilient children.
