Licensed Holiday Break Child Care – Summer Care Update (May 1, 2020)

YMCA Child Care traditionally offers licensed Care for 4 year olds during the school holiday breaks at designated Child Care Centres. As well for summer only, 3 year olds entering junior kindergarten in September have been eligible to register.

At this time the Ministry of Education has mandated the temporary closure of all Licensed Child Care Centres across the province and as a result all YMCA of Niagara Licensed Child Care Centres are currently closed.

The YMCA has made a decision to pause all plans to offer Licensed Holiday Break Child Care for 3 and 4 years old’s during the summer of 2020 until we receive further direction from both the Provincial and Public Health recommendation related to how and when licensed child care programs can resume.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
