At the Y, we’ve never met a kid whose potential we couldn’t see. It’s our belief in developing a child’s potential that has led us to our position today as Manitoba’s largest provider of child care services.

Our Child Care programs focus on helping children develop seven core values: respect, responsibility, inclusiveness, caring, health, honesty and equality.

We believe that it’s crucial for children to be active. Our Child Care centres incorporate physical activities into our programming, including: outdoor activities, gym time and a swimming program for the preschool children.

About Preschool Child Care

Our programs focus on:

  • Nurturing your child’s development
  • Providing a safe place for your child to learn life skills
  • Developing positive relationships that lead to positive self-esteem
  • Instilling healthy concepts for body, mind and spirit
  • Providing a child-inspired curriculum

Families are welcome to spend time at the centre with their children, share their expertise and talents or contribute to special events. You are also welcome to join your specific program’s Parent Advisory Committees.

Weemarkable 

We are now using a mobile app, Weemarkable, to communicate daily with parents at our South and St. James locations. We plan to expand this offering to our other centres in the future. Learn more about Weemarkable here.
