As Canada’s largest child care provider, we know childhood is a special time when the seeds of future success are planted. Our programs are based on a curriculum that encourages the physical, mental, and social development of your child.

The health and well-being of your child is at the heart of everything we do. At the Y, you’ll find caring and dedicated staff who love to make every day a special day for your child.

The YMCA of Pictou County offers…

  • Early Learning Child Care for ages 3 months to 5 years old
  • After School Care for ages 5 years old to 12 years old
  • Child Minding services
    • It’s not easy for families with young children to find the time to exercise. YMCA child minding programs make it possible for families to stay active together. We provide young children a safe, welcoming environment while adults work out. Our child minding staff and volunteers are trained to care for young children, and are certified in First Aid and CPR.
