• Provide an affordable, safe and nurturing place for children to grow and create in a holistic and responsive environment

YWCA Regina early learning programs are based on explorative, dramatic and creative play in order to develop and stimulate the children’s abilities as they grow socially, physically, intellectually and spiritually. It is an environment based on trust and respect where the child develops a sense of self, belonging and self-worth in a culturally sensitive environment. Children will see themselves and their interests reflected as they are invited to investigate, explore and play in a flexible environment. We foster independence and decision making skills as the children are viewed as competent and capable members of society.
In addition to the Regina Before and After School/Day Camp program, YWCA has four licensed child care centres in the Regina area and a Before and After School Program located at the Lumsden Elementary School.
