YWCA Child Care Centres
NOTE TO PARENTS For more information, see the Parent Handbook. After reading through the handbook, if you would like to add your information to our waitlists, please contact the manager of the centre that you are interested in your child attending: Downtown facilities, (306) 525-2141; Century Crescent, (306) 359-4425; and Lumsden, (306) 731-1300.
Our Child Care Centres offer a full range of developmental programming to nurture children's physical, emotional, social, intellectual and creative lives. We offer a total of 271 child care spaces, both in Regina and in partnership with Lumsden Elementary School.
The Child Care program follows a philosophy which shifts the image of the child from a child with needs that adults meet to a child with strengths. We stress the image of a competent child who is a producer as opposed to a consumer of resources and one who has a right to a quality early childhood education: one that provides the child with relationships and experiences that promote and foster development.
We operate four licensed subsidized child care centres for children from 6 weeks to 12 years, with one of our four centres providing care for infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers from 6 weeks to 6 years. We provide care on a full time, daily or drop-in basis. Our hours of operation are from 7:00 am-6:00 pm Monday-Friday. We provide children with breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
Our staff has varying levels of education from certificates or diplomas in Early Childhood Education to degrees in Education and Psychology. They also have first aid and CPR certification and all employees of the YWCA have a police record check.
