Strong. Safe. Connected. 

A Note From Your Child Care Leadership Team 

Your YMCA believes in creating safe and welcoming spaces for all. We believe there is no place for racism and intolerance, and we're committed to listening, learning and making the changes needed to make this a reality.


Hello Everyone,  

It's hard to believe that we're almost through 2021. On behalf of YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care, thank you to all our families and staff for your ongoing efforts in helping keep one another safe. Since March 2020, you’ve continued to demonstrate patience, understanding, and flexibility as we’ve navigated uncertainty and change together.

As we look ahead to 2022, we remain committed to continue delivering the high-quality care and programming you’ve come to expect from YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care. We've created a summary of our closure, inclement weather policy, and fee schedules (effective January 1, 2022), for each of our Three Rivers regions. Please take a moment to review the appropriate regional document (in the pdf below) to learn more.

Thank you for continuing to choose YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care. We love having your family with us. If you have any questions, please contact your centre supervisor.

Please continue to stay healthy and well.  

Kim, Terri, and Jaime, on behalf of the YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care Team
