Choosing child care is a big decision for your family.

Selecting the right child care for your family involves location, price, and programs. We get that. All of our locations are staffed with Registered Early Childhood Educators committed to fostering safe, welcoming, and nurturing environments where your child feels at home. As Canada’s leading not-for-profit child care provider, we provide exceptional care that’s accessible for all.

To learn about fees in your region, please contact the supervisor of the centre you’re interested in.



All YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care centres (including those in Guelph-Wellington, Stratford-Perth, and Waterloo Region) have regional partnerships, which enable families to register for financial assistance. To learn more about the process in your region, follow the links below. 



Waitlist Registration


We’re excited to welcome your child to one of our centres. Now that you’ve made the decision on where you’d like to send your child, the next step is registration. To help make your registration process as simple as possible, please follow the steps for your area to be added to your child care waitlist.



Regardless of the location you’re registering for, you’ll be contacted by a member of the YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care team when there is a spot available. 


Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement 


Recently, the federal and provincial governments entered into the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement to make child care more affordable for families with children under six years of age. A plan for reduced fees is a priority for the Ministry of Education and those Child Care Operators who have chosen to participate. 

The YMCA of Three Rivers Child Care is participating in the Canada Wide Early Learning Child Care system. As a result, parents using care with the YMCA of Three Rivers will see a gradual reduction of fees over the next few years.
