The Program

YMCA Calgary’s Child Development Centres gives children 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.

All children registered in YMCA Child Development Centres receive a complimentary YMCA Calgary Child Membership. This membership provides access to YMCA facilities and registered program discounts. Positive, caring relationships form the foundation for all that occurs within the childcare setting.

Children learn about YMCA Calgary’s four core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. They practice behaviours which support social skill development, emotional competence and community engagement. Children belong, grow and thrive at the Y.
