Child Care




The YMCA – YWCA of Guelph provides a safe , stable and nurturing environment that allows parents the opportunity to pursue careers or further their education. We operate approximately 780 licensed spaces for infants, toddlers, preschool, kindergarten and school age children through 14 centres in the Guelph community and 1 in Rockwood. Over 850 children are served in all licensed programs and over 400 children served in licensed extended day school age programs.

Our staff are qualified, skilled, and experienced professionals selected to meet the needs of children in our care, and their families. We are the largest provider of Child Care in our community and offer a safe, stable and nurturing environment. Through active play and the YMCA Playing to Learn Curriculum, children gain the foundations for literacy, science & technology, and the arts. Your child will leave the Y with a continued enthusiasm and capacity for life-long learning and grow up more healthy, active and engaged!
