The Government of Ontario has announced that licensed child care centres and EarlyON programs will remain closed as Canadians are urged to continue physical distancing as much as possible.
Licensed child care centres and programs are expected to re-open when the province transitions to the next stage of its reopening plan. Please continue to check ymcagta.org/Alerts for the latest information.
Thank you for your continued support of the YMCA of Greater Toronto and we look forward to welcoming you back to our centres as soon as we’re able.
