The Provincial Government recently announced that schools across the province will not resume “in-class learning” until Monday, January 25, 2021.  The YMCA of Oakville continues to align our programs with the School Boards which means the YMCA of Oakville Before and After School Age programs will also not reopen until Monday, January 25, 2021.

Before and After School Age Child Care:

We continue to follow the direction from the Ministry of Education and our School Age Programs will commence on the return to school date. Parents will not be charged during this closure period.

Toddler and Preschool Child Care:

Unless we are specifically advised by the Ministry of Education that access to schools must be restricted, we have been advised that access to the infant/toddler/preschool centres will be allowed. Therefore, Toddler and Preschool programs will operate daily, as usual, and should there be any change to this plan, we will share this information through our centres, Weemarkable, and our YMCA website.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and is subject to change. Please monitor the YMCA of Oakville website and your email for further updates. Please ensure that we have your most current contact information.

The safety of our children, families, and staff is our first priority. The YMCA in consultation with school boards and public health will continue to monitor the situation carefully and will keep you updated as soon as we have more information.

Providing a strong foundation for learning in a safe environment.

YMCA Child Care supports the healthy growth and development of children and promotes a lifelong appreciation for learning. Our YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum prepares our youngest children for academic success in the areas of language and literacy, math, science and technology and the arts. Our before and after school programs provide school-age children with a safe, supervised and active experience that fosters social skills and develops a sense of community.

UPDATE: 2020-2021 Child Care Registration

Wait-list for NEW Child Care participants for the 2020-2021 School Year

New families looking to register for YMCA of Oakville Child Care for the 2020-2021 school year are asked to complete and submit the inquiry form below to add your child to our wait-list.

Be sure to complete one form for each child you would like to put on the wait-list.

At this time, we are doing our best to plan for the new school year and like you, we are waiting for more information from the provincial government as we wait to see exactly how and when our child care programs can resume.

Please note: Filling out this form does not guarantee your child’s spot. It is still dependent on availability at your preferred site and direction from the provincial and local government. When a position becomes available, our staff will be in contact to discuss registration.

Thank you for choosing YMCA Child Care.

Waiting List Policy

If the program is operating at capacity, your child will be added to the centre’s waiting list. There is no fee for a family to be placed on our waiting list. Available child care spaces are to be filled by families on the waiting list according to the ordinance of sequential dates as indicated on the child care waiting list forms. Priority will be given to families wishing to register their child in a full-time space. Families transferring from other YMCA Child Care centres, or siblings who are already registered will have priority for the next available space.

When space becomes available the first person on the waiting list is contacted and asked if they are interested in the space or if they would prefer to remain on the waiting list. If they cannot be reached on the first attempt, contact will be attempted again on the next business day. If they cannot be reached, or do not return our call within 24 hours after the second call, the next person on the list will be contacted. A family has 24 hours after initial contact has been made to confirm their acceptance of the child care space. Families on the waitlist can contact the supervisor at any time to determine their standing on the waiting list.
