The YMCA of Timmins Child Care provides care and learning for children in a safe and nurturing environment. Our supportive, knowledgeable staff offer parents peace of mind and children the opportunity to realize their potential through positive reinforcement and innovative programs. Our national “YMCA Playing to Learn” curriculum, for, example, is designed to build a capacity for and love of lifelong learning in young children by creating quality learning experiences through play.

The YMCA of Timmins furthers each child’s personal development through creative play and child centered activities that encourage each child to develop skill levels at their own rate.

YMCA Playing To Learn

YMCA Playing to Learn is a national curriculum developed by the lead association, the YMCA of Greater-Toronto, that helps children in YMCA licensed preschool child care discover learning through creative play and aligns with primary school benchmarks

YMCA Playing to Learn provides an understanding of how play provides the foundation for learning to read and write, and for learning mathematics, science and technology. It provides early educators with the skills to prepare spaces that are more conducive to learning, and the best practices to encourage quality-learning experiences.

Infants – 3 months to 18 months
