The YMCA of Northern Alberta is the largest provider of not-for-profit day care in Western Canada. As a charity, we make no profit from any of our Child Care programs.
YMCA Early Years Child Care (birth – 5 years) is infant/toddler care, where staff members are aware of developmental stages that guide preschool childrens' growth, building on the natural desire to learn new things, become more self-reliant and learn to get along with others. Early Years is based on YMCA Playing to Learn - a national curriculum that helps children discover learning through creative play. YMCA Early Years Child Care is part of our registered charity.
