Where do you work? We work at the YMCA child care centre at that Deerhurst Resort; we provide toddler, pre-school and after school care.
What’s your favorite part of working at the Y? Sharing and watching staff and their kids grow together.
How many children are in your programs? 30 children aged 18 months to 10 years old.
What makes the YMCA unique as a child care provider? Philosophy of service through our playing to learn curriculum and our values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusion.
Is there anything else people should know about what makes the YMCA child care experience uniquely awesome? The support that parents and staff receive from our child care team. If someone calls in sick, we know that we can count on another staff from Penetanguishine to drive up to fill in. that wouldn’t happen anywhere else. The Y is the best place I’ve ever worked.
My Y is a supportive community. My Y is the Deerhurst Child Care centre.
