Children shine brightest when they play and learn — together. Giving them a strong foundation of trust and safety allows them to explore through their own natural curiosity and play.
At the Y, we’ve never met a kid who didn't have the potential to shine. By valuing the uniqueness and diversity of all children, we adapt to the needs of our families and their children. This has allowed us to build trust and become Manitoba’s largest child care provider. See how we can help your child grow, learn, and thrive with licensed child care for ages 18 months to 12 years.
Child Care Programs
Caregiving routines centre on each infant's schedule and focus on building trust, learning, language, and social and emotional development.
Children learn and thrive through play with our YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum while parents stay connected with our Weemarkable app.
Children continue to learn through play in care designed around school-based nursery/kindergarten programs.
Children flourish through opportunities for choice and leadership, a focus on strengths, and a place to naturally develop skills and relationships.
For Youth with Additional Needs
Our After School Program for Students with Additional Support Needs is for students ages 13-21, whose parents require after-school support for employment purposes. We provide a safe and non-judgmental environment in which the students are free to express themselves and participate in activities that promote social interaction. Staff are trained to foster the self-worth and independence of the students.
Your Child's Emergency and Health Forms
YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg uses ePACT to securely collect and manage critical emergency information for all children registered in childcare, day camps and summer overnight camps. ePACT replaces the need to fill out multiple paper forms and ensures we have the most up-to-date and accurate contact and medical information in case of emergency.
ePACT is quick and easy!
Here are a few things you will need to complete your ePACT record:
- Health Insurance information or personal healthcare number
- Medical history
- Emergency or pick-up list contact information
First-time users will receive an email once their child has been registered into a camp or childcare centre to create an ePACT account. Once your account has been activated, you can click the button below to access your account and make any adjustments to the information when necessary.
