A bright strong start to a healthy future

At the Y, we believe that children learn best when their natural activity of play is encouraged. Our curriculum, YMCA Playing to Learn, offers programming focused on fostering a child’s enthusiasm and capacity for lifelong learning through active and quiet play experiences. Qualified YMCA educators will engage in play activities with your child that stimulate early learning while enhancing their social, emotional, and physical development.
For more than 50 years, the YMCA has strengthened communities across the Greater Toronto Area by providing child care programs that support and nurture the well-being of young children. Let us help your child build confidence and develop essential school readiness skills so that they can have a strong start to a great future. today about program spaces at your nearest YMCA Child Care Centre.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are membership fees increasing?

After six years of keeping our fees flat, the YMCA decided to introduce a modest increase in membership rates. This will ensure we can continue to deliver quality programs and services to our community. The fee increase will also help cover rising operational costs and allow us to maintain and improve our facilities.

When will new fees take effect?

The new membership rates take effect on April 1, 2024. The update will be automatically reflected in your My Y account.

Are other fees going up?

Operational costs have increased significantly over the past few years without any fee increases. As a result, we recently embarked on a review of all membership and program fees. On February 1, we increased Personal Training fees and are in the process of increasing membership fees. We aren't increasing other items like registered programs, towel services, or join fees. We'll notify you in advance if we adjust other fees in the future.

Do you offer financial assistance for memberships?

Yes. Although we have kept the fee increases modest, we understand everyone's circumstances are unique. As a charity, we do not want our updated pricing to affect your ability to continue to enjoy the YMCA. If applicable, we encourage you to consider our Financial Assistance program. 

Are membership fees going up for assisted memberships?

Yes. The increase will be proportionate to your current financial assistance rates, which will remain unchanged. For example, if the standard fee increase is $2/month and your standard assistance rate is 50%, your increase will be just $1 (or 50% of $2). Please notify us if your financial circumstances have changed and you need to adjust your financial assistance.

How often can we expect future fee reviews or adjustments?

Fee reviews are conducted periodically to ensure the YMCA's financial sustainability as a charitable organization. Any future adjustments will be communicated in advance, and member feedback will be considered in the decision-making process.

How does the YMCA communicate changes or updates to members?

Members are informed of changes or updates through various communication channels, including emails, notices within the facility, and updates on our website and the Shine On app if necessary. We are committed to keeping our members well-informed.
