About Licensed Child Care

The YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region provides high quality, trusted child care to the families in our community. With 3 locations across the city, our Licensed Child Care Centres deliver programs designed to meet the needs of toddlers through to school-aged children.

Our unique child-focused approach to child care means that activities are tailored to the developmental needs of children where they can choose a variety of activities based on the children’s interests to encourage discovery and imagination.
From swimming lessons and weekly gym activities, to arts and crafts and educational support and development, our values-based programs promote positive social connections, encourage self-esteem and help children achieve developmental milestones.
