Before & After School Programs for Kids
For many parents and guardians, their children’s school day is often shorter than their work day. So how can you make sure your children are well looked after even when they’re not in school? The YMCA of Greater Toronto has the answer!

For over 40 years, we have made high-quality child care programs available in neighbourhoods throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Today, we are the largest provider of not-for-profit Licensed Child Care in Canada. As the largest provider of not-for-profti Licensed Child Care in Canada, we provide:

  • Convenient locations in neighbourhoods throughout the GTA
  • A safe and caring environment for your children to learn and grow
  • A curriculum that focuses on character development and team building
  • Well-trained, qualified staff committed to treating children with respect and dignity
  • Programs that leverage the YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum
  • Winter break and March break programs in some locations
  • Very affordable fees and financial assistance to those families that cannot afford to pay the full fee

Whether you need early-morning programs or after-school supervision, ensure your kids enjoy a safe, secure, and fun environment. For children ages 4 and 5 that are in full-day kindergarten, we offer Early Learning Extended Day Programs. For those kids that are in full-day school programs, grades 1 to 6, we offer School Age Programs. Standard hours of operation are from 7–9 a.m. and 3–6 p.m. but vary based on location.
