UPDATE

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.

Start and end every school day with the YMCA!

YMCA Before and After School Care, a licensed* child care program for children 3.8 to 12 years, provides children with a seamless day in one location right at their own school.

What sets YMCA Child Care apart?

The YMCA is a leader in child care, operating with consistent best practices and standards across the country. Every program is staffed by YMCA trained professionals, selected for their educational background and aptitude for working with children. The result is a safe, nurturing and enjoyable way for your child to begin and end each school day.

* All YMCA Child Care programs are licensed under the Child Care and Early Years Act with regular evaluation to ensure quality in Child Care practices. They are also inspected annually to confirm compliance by Ministry standards. The end result is a safe, nurturing environment to begin and end their day at school.

YMCA Before and After School programs operate before school from 7:00 a.m. until school starts and after school until 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, September to June. Our qualified staff provide an active, engaging, fun and child directed program.  Nutritious snacks are offered before and after school.

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 a 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.
