    YMCA Quality Statement

    Parent evaluations, current research, and over 20 years of experience in delivering child care programs have helped us to define our Quality Checklist:

    • children are happy and involved
    • educators have a caring attitude
    • centre, equipment and toys are accessible, clean and safe
    • children participate in small groups in stimulating activities with teachers
    • food is nutritionally balanced
    • parent-educator communication is promoted, and parents feel welcome in the centre
    • sufficient play materials are available
    • outdoor play activities are taking place in well-maintained play areas
    • educators are good role models and have ongoing and appropriate training
    • parents have regular feedback about their child

    Licensing

    Every child care centre in Alberta is regulated by the Provincial Licensing Standards. Centres are required to meet the mandatory regulations and are regularly visited by a Licensing Officer to ensure they are in compliance. Reports from these visits are posted in your centre and are available for parents to view. Any recommendations from these reports are used as an opportunity to improve the centre.

    Accreditation

    The purpose of Accreditation in Alberta is to raise the standard of Child Care in the Province and improve best practices in Early Learning and Child Care Services. Accreditation is a voluntary process and involves great dedication on the part of the educators and the centre.

    The benefits of an accredited centre:

    • attracts families who are looking for a high-quality centre
    • attracts educators who are looking to work in a quality centre
    • the educators receive support funding

    All of our centres participate in the Accreditation process. Preschool Accreditation was implemented in 2004, and School-Age Accreditation was launched in 2009. Our centres are at varying stages in the process. Please ask your Director for more information.

    Physical Literacy

    • individuals who are physically literate move with confidence and competence in a wide variety of activities and environments that develop the whole person
    • once these skills are built up there is an increase in self-esteem and self-confidence
    • ensure that fundamental movement skills are offered in our programs
    • help to progress participants through skill development
    • provide a framework to structure games and physical activity opportunities
    • all opportunities to practice a variety of skills through numerous activities
